“The Sisters Brothers” are hitting the dusty trail and staking their claim on a Digital release date in January. 20th Century FOX has confirmed that the western will release on Digital HD on January 22, followed by the Blu-ray and DVD release on February 5th.
The film is based on Patrick deWitt’s acclaimed novel and set during the 1850’s gold rush. The story follows two brothers earning a living as hired guns as they hunt down a chemist who has stolen a valuable formula from their employer. Charlie Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix) is a violent drunkard with a penchant for the hard life he and his brother have grown into, while Eli Sisters (John C. Reilly) is torn between the desire for a simpler, more peaceful life and the guilt-ridden responsility to stick by his brother’s side, despite the trouble it brings. While the two brothers pursue the chemist (Riz Ahmed) and his unlikely companion John Morris (Jake Gyllenhaal) across the Oregon Territory, director Jacques Audiard takes viewers on a cathartic exploration of what it means to be a man in a world contrasted by violence and opportunity.
“The Sisters Brothers” premiered at the Venice Film Festival and earned Jacques Audiard the coveted Silver Lion Award given to the best director of the festival. The film was Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and made over $3M domestically while in theaters.
The actors in the film have a lot of projects in the works. John C. Reilly recently starred in the animated-comedy “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and is teaming up again with Will Ferrell for the buddy-comedy “Holmes & Watson”. Joaquin Phoenix is currently filming a new Joker movie for the DC universe, and Jake Gyllenhaal is playing the role of Mysterio for the next Spider-Man installment, “Spider-Man: Far From Home”.
