The Sisters Brother - Blu-ray Review20th Century Fox has announced the date and release details for its critically acclaimed western drama The Sisters Brothers which hit theaters back in October.

We will get a Movies Anywhere digital release on January 22 next year followed a couple of weeks later by a blu-ray + digital release on February 5 of 2019.

Based on Patrick deWitt’s acclaimed novel, The Sisters Brothers is set during the 1850’s gold rush and follows two brothers earning a living as hired guns as they hunt down a chemist who has stolen a valuable formula from their employer. Charlie Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix) is a violent drunkard with a penchant for the hard life he and his brother have grown into, while Eli Sisters (John C. Reilly) is torn between the desire for a simpler, more peaceful life and the guilt-ridden responsibility to stick by his brother’s side, despite the trouble it brings. {googleads}

While the two brothers pursue the chemist (Riz Ahmed) and his unlikely companion John Morris (Jake Gyllenhaal) across the Oregon Territory, director Jacques Audiard takes viewers on a cathartic exploration of what it means to be a man in a world contrasted by violence and opportunity.
