Sisters Brothers, The (15)

Western, Comedy, Adventure

A black comedy in which two assassins attempt to track down a gold prospector.

The critical consensus

An eccentric, funny yarn filled with eccentric, funny characters, Audiard’s oater deftly twists Western tropes, sending its charming, ramshackle heroes scurrying from one bizarre incident to the next.

****(*)Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 01/04/2019

Sad, sweet, and a little bit gross. But that’s what brotherhood is.

****(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 01/04/2019

This is a film that feels richer in hinted-at subtext than it does in actual story, which makes watching it feel like panning for gold with too little reward.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 04/04/2019

Jacques Audiard’s film remains engaging thanks to its exceptional central performances from John C Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 05/04/2019

This adaptation of Patrick deWitt’s 2011 novel balances bro humour with complex characters.
