 Trailer.

Alicia arrives in South America to vacation with her cousin, Sarah. When Sarah is suddenly called away, Alicia is stuck on a remote island off Chile with three of Sarah’s friends, including Brink, an American exchange student with a sadistic streak. Bewildered, frightened, and unable to sleep, Alicia’s reality becomes a nightmare from which there is no waking. Ancient indigenous rites, disturbing animal behavior, and captivating hypnotic trances come together in an intense exploration into the darkest corners… when the games go too far, reality unravels with astonishing and deadly consequences.

Edward James Olmos in ‘Go For Sisters’ – Opens Friday December 20- in SF & SJ

GoForSisters_Olmos

Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) and Fontayne (Yolonda Ross) grew up the closest of friends, but time sent them down different paths. Twenty years later, those paths cross: Fontayne is a recovering addict fresh out of jail, and Bernice is her new parole officer. When Bernice’s son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border, his shady associates all in hiding or brutally murdered, Bernice realizes she needs someone with the connections to navigate Rodney’s world without involving the police… and turns to her old friend. The pair enlist the services of disgraced ex-LAPD detective Freddy Suárez (Edward James Olmos) and plunge into the dim underbelly of Tijuana, forced to unravel a complex web of human traffickers, smugglers, and corrupt cops before Rodney meets the same fate as his partners. As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, GO FOR SISTERS is a welcome return to the border for master filmmaker and 2-time Oscar nominee John Sayles (Lone Star, Passion Fish, City of Hope, Amigo, Matewan, Men With Guns, Eight Men Out, The Brother From Another Planet).

“Sayles gives us vibrant, complex characters inhabited by actors who burrow deep — a reminder of how scarce classical, involving human drama is at the movies nowadays.” – Scott Foundas, The Village Voice

“A run for the border as gripping and complex as his 1996 Lone Star… The hunt is fraught with tension, though Sayles – as always, keeping the action at street level and vividly filling the screen with a culture’s sights, sounds, and rich, distinctive characters – makes us as concerned for the fate of two women’s friendship as for a man’s life.” – Robert Faires, The Austin Chronicle

“John Sayles’ working-class obsessions are put to good use in borderland detective tale… Sisters knows exactly what it’s doing.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“Go for Sisters is an original, artfully blending humor and drama as these three journey to Mexico from California. The performances here are what you expect from a Sayles film: powerful and understated.” –Elizabeth Stoddard, The Austin Film Society

Check listings for times. Will be at Opera Plaza Cinema in San Francisco and Camera 3 in San Jose.
