The Sisters Brothers Trailer

“The Sisters Brothers” Are Heading Home

After being painfully overlooked during its original theatrical run, Jacques Audiard’s critically acclaimed The Sisters Brothers has gotten a well-deserved home video street date, hitting digital outlets on January 22 and physical shelves two weeks later.

The film, which is set in the 1950s, follows two brothers (with recently differentiating views of their future) as they hunt down a chemist who has stolen a valuable formula from his employer.  The journey takes them across the Oregon Territory as viewers are shown two brothers who dig deep in an attempt to understand themselves fully.  It’s a gritty, western drama backed by wit and style, all of which won director Jacques Audiard the coveted Silver Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival.

Though The Sisters Brothers struggled to catch momentum during its fall theatrical run, 20th Century Fox is offering up a few bonus features to sweeten the deal this time around.  Included in the Blu-Ray/DVD edition is a Striking Gold: Making a “Modern Day” Western feature, a Q&A Panel and the film’s original theatrical trailer.

The Sisters Brothers stars Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Riz Ahmed.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
