Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will present the Western-comedy movie “The Sisters Brothers” from Friday, Nov. 9, -Thursday, Nov. 15.
Directed by Jacques Audiard and based upon the novel by Patrick deWitt, “The Sisters Brothers” is set in 1851. Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are both brothers and assassins, boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world. They have blood on their hands and they know no state of existence other than being gunmen.
The Sisters brothers find themselves on a journey to the Gold Rush land of California — a journey that will test the deadly family ties that bind. The movie also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Rebecca Root, and Allison Tolman.
Audiard was awarded “Best Director” at the Venice Film Festival for “The Sisters Brothers,” while the movie was also nominated for “Best Film.”
The Seattle Times writes that “Audiard has made an atmospheric Western in which the four lead actors portray their characters with remarkable subtlety.” The Houston Chronicle also writes that the movie is a “rewarding take on brotherhood and bonding amid the itchy trigger fingers and lust for quick riches of the California gold rush.”
“The Sisters Brothers” runs 120 minutes and is rated R (for violence including disturbing images, language, and some sexual content). Admission is $7, $6 for students and military, and $5 for Capitol Friends. Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol box office (315-337-6453) and online at www.romecapitol.com.
Show times are Friday and Saturday at 4 and 7 p.m., Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m., and Monday-Thursday at 7 p.m. The Friday 4 and Sunday 1 show times will include captions for the hearing-impaired.
