Brothers Eli and Charlie Sisters ( John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix) are two infamous assassins in the American Wild West who, at the peak of the 1851 Gold Rush, were known for being vicious, cynical and efficient. The Commodore (Rutger Hauer), Oregon’s mob boss, hires them to murder a gold digger who has double-crossed him, but their mission is hindered by the arrival of a bounty hunter ( Jake Gyllenhaal) who shares the same target. Eli, the most sensitive of the brothers, starts to feel the weight of the count- less occupational hazards linked to their new contract, and experiences an existential crisis that his alcoholic brother cannot seem to relate to.
French director Jacques Audiard explores the Western genre and casts a fresh look on it, through his distinctive sensitivity and multidimensional characters. A story of redemption that stands out thanks to the unique chemistry between its two main characters, the humor, and its exquisite visual style.
