(October 16, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records has released the THE SISTERS BROTHERS – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on October 12, 2018 on Digital Download and CD. The album features original music by Oscar-winning Composer Alexandre Desplat (THE SHAPE OF WATER, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL).
Creating the wonderful sound for the expensive western frontier and the mutable relationships of the brothers of THE SISTERS BROTHERS, Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat is one of the most coveted film composers in the world today. Desplat is noted for his collaborations with some of the world’s top filmmakers: Wes Anderson, George Clooney, Stephen Daldry, David Fincher, Stephen Frears, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee, Terrence Malick, Roman Polanski and Angelina Jolie garnering nine Academy Award nominations.
It is 1851, and Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world of the frontier. Now ride as both brothers and assassins in THE SISTERS BROTHERS. They have blood on their hands: that of criminals, that of innocents…and know no existence other than that of the hired gun. The older of the two, introspective Eli (Reilly) rides hard while the other brother dares to dream of a normal life. It is the younger, hard-drinking Charlie (Phoenix) who has taken charge with gusto, acting as the big dog on the duo’s assignments. It is a friction between the brothers that increasingly leads to questions and quibbles about each other’s methods.
The Sisters brothers find themselves on a journey through the Northwest, bringing them to the mountains of Oregon, a dangerous brothel in the small town of Mayfield, and eventually, the Gold Rush land of California — a journey that will test the deadly family ties that bind. But, can it also be the path to rediscovering what remains of their humanity?
Composer Alexandre Desplat first captivated American ears with THE GIRL WITH THE PEARL EARRING and BIRTH. The two-time Golden Globe and Oscar winner has since scored a range of incredible films, eight of which have been Oscar-nominated: THE QUEEN, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, FANTASTIC MR. FOX, THE KING’S SPEECH, ARGO, PHILOMENA, THE IMITATION GAME and Wes Anderson’s THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL which won the 2015 Oscar for Best Score. Desplat’s thematic score to Guillermo Del Toro’s film, THE SHAPE OF WATER garnered a 2018 Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and recently won the Academy Award for Best Original Score.
