Acclaimed French director Jacques Audiard’s English-language debut is western dark comedy based on Patrick deWitt’s 2011 historical novel of the same name. In 1850s Oregon, a notorious assassin duo named the Sisters Brothers (John C Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix) decide to travel to San Francisco to hunt down a gold prospector (Riz Ahmed) with the help of a detective (Jake Gyllenhaal).~Augustine Chay
When I saw the cover on this I assumed immediately "slapstick comedy Western." Then I read the movie description and found that it wasn't - rather it is a serious tale of two bounty hunting brothers in 1851 Oregon. I have watched this twice since I bought it and have had 3 friends borrow my copy and all of us have had the same review of "WOW!" If you can see this, DO IT!
