Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Riz Ahmed and Jake Gyllenhaal Go West in ‘The Sisters Brothers’ trailer

In 1851 Oregon, two brothers – Eli (Oscar nominee John C. Reilly) and Charlie (Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix) Sisters – are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss in this darkly comic follow-up to Jacques Audiard’s 2015 Palme d’Or winning film Dheepan. Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (who was a jury member at Cannes the year Audiard won) co-stars as Hermann Kermit Warm, the prospector being hunted by Eli and Charlie and Emmy winner Riz Ahmed (HBO’s The Night Of) as a chemist with a clever way to quickly discover hidden gold.

Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, The Sisters Brothers was adapted by Audiard and collaborator Patrick Dewitt, shot by Benoît Debie (Enter the Void, Spring Breakers) and scored by two-time Oscar winner Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Shape of Water). It also stars Rutger Hauer and Carol Kane.

Annapurna Pictures has The Sisters Brothers set for a fall release but no date yet. Here is the trailer.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
