It is 1851, and Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are both brothers and assassins, boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world as guns for hire. Eli rides hard with his younger sibling Charlie, yet dares to dream of a normal life. But the hard-drinking Charlie has taken charge with gusto as lead man on the duo’s assignments. Each increasingly questions, and quibbles with, the other’s methods as they embark on a journey that will test the deadly family ties that bind.
Also starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed, The Sisters Brothers features an adapted screenplay by Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain based on the novel of the same name.
