THE SISTERS BROTHERS (15) – 2018 USA/France 122 mins

Director: Jacques Audiard
Stars: John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed

Charlie and Eli Sisters are bounty hunters for Oregon City’s Commodore. Their latest mission is to track down a chemist headed for the California Gold Rush with a secret formula… In his first English language feature, Audiard (The Prophet, Rust And Bone) reveals a rich sense of humour amidst the gunsmoke, stunning Western landscape and faultless period details, and majestic score by Alexandre Desplat (The Shape of Water, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Reilly is the pick of an excellent cast, as a sensitive man dealt a tough hand by fate.

An all-American delight – ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

At a professional and personal low point, art gallery owner Susan (Adams) receives – out of the blue – a manuscript from her novelist ex-husband (Gyllenhaal), who she hasn’t seen in years. 

 

 

Once a naïve romantic, Edward has now produced a vivid, shocking thriller.

 

 

Captivated, Susan, in a film-within-a-film visualises Edward’s tale of a family man (also played by Gyllenhaal) driven to violent revenge and is drawn into a re-evaluation of her life as past, present and fiction become entangled.

She finds herself drawn into a re-evaluation of her life and relationships as past, present and Edward’s fiction become entangled.

Directing a superb ensemble cast, Ford delivers not just the style of A Single Man but also gripping action and savage wit.
