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.
