Official Trailer

In the California 1850s gold rush era, the infamous Sisters Brothers are assassins for hire. The Brothers, played by Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly are ruthless and professional, yet their relationship becomes the crux of all of their decisions and behaviour. A violent childhood left them both scarred and yet strangely lovable. This film is like no Western ever made before, but compared to Unforgiven. It’s based on the book by Canadian author Patrick DeWitt, which is a best seller worldwide.
