THE SISTERS BROTHERS
If the thought of French auteur Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust And Bone) making his English-language debut with that most American of genres, the western, isn’t enough to make you holler “Hee-haw!”, then consider the cast he’s assembled: Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed. Set in the 1850s and based on the novel of the same name, it tells of the titular assassins (Phoenix, Reilly) travelling from Oregon to San Francisco to off Ahmed’s chemist; Gyllenhaal plays a prospector. Expect adventures, revelations, death. Also expect the unexpected – this is a dark comedy and the trailer features broad laughs.
