The Sisters Brothers
by Jacques Audiard
Oregon, 1851: Whenever there are shots fired or houses burnt down, it is usually the hardened gunslingers Charlie and Eli that are responsible for the commotion. The brothers, who have made a name for themselves in the Wild West as "The Sisters Brothers", offer their unerring services to those who pay them the most. Their mysterious new client, "Comodore", has his eye on gold digger Hermann Kermit Warm. While the whiskey-drinking, unscrupulous Charlie is quick to draw his gun, the more thoughtful Eli finds himself plagued with doubts as they make their way from Oregon City to the gold mines. How long can a career as criminal be maintained? Based on the eponymous novel by Patrick Dewitt, director Jacques Audiard makes his first transatlantic leap in staging this fabulous Western comedy.
