Tickets to our Opening Gala are SOLD OUT!
THE SISTERS BROTHERS is Calgary Film's 2018 Opening Gala selection, showing on September 19 at 7:30 PM at the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Pre-reception starts at 6:30 PM, screening starts at 7:30 PM
The California Gold Rush is on, and a pair of deadly assassins – brothers Eli and Charlie Sisters (John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix) – have been sent to hunt down a prospector who has discovered a chemical formula that reveals hidden gold. Pursuing the prospector and his partner (Jake Gyllenhaal) through the Oregon Territory and northern California, the brothers fight and drink their way through a series of misadventures, while wrestling with their violent calling and dark past.
Based on the bestselling, award-winning novel by Canadian author Patrick deWitt, and winner of the Silver Lion for Best Director at the 2018 Venice Film Festival for director Jacques Audiard (also winner of the Cannes Palme d'Or for 2015's DHEEPAN), THE SISTERS BROTHERS is an instant classic of the Western genre.
