The Sisters Brothers, dir. Jacques Audiard, USA / France, 2018, 123 min., English
A jocular and subversive Western from acclaimed French director Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone, A Prophet), based on the novel by Patrick deWitt.
The scene is 1850’s Oregon, and infamous sibling outlaws Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are working as hired assassins for a mobster known as the Commodore. Charlie is a reckless, charismatic drunk, while the fretful Eli hopelessly yearns for a less blood-soaked existence. When the Commodore enlists a pompous private detective (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) to assist the gunmen on their next hit job, the Sisters brothers find themselves on a perilous journey through the Northwest in pursuit of their assigned target.
This English-language debut was awarded Best Director at the 2018 Venice Film Festival, Best Director, Cinematography, Production Design and Sound at the 2018 Cesar awards, and Best Film, Director and Cinematography at the 24th Lumières Awards.
