Story


Bernice Stokes and Fontayne Gamble grew up the closest of friends. After high school Bernice got into social services and corrections work, and Fontayne just got into trouble. Twenty years later Bernice is assigned as parole officer for Fontayne- just released from prison and fighting a drug habit. But Bernice's son Rodney has gone missing on the Mexican border, and his shady partners are in hiding or brutally murdered. Fontayne, through a prison girlfriend, enlists Freddy Suarez, a disgraced, near-blind ex-LAPD detective once known as 'the Terminator,' to help them find Rodney. Outlaws on a noble quest, they are lured into a potentially deadly cat-and-mouse game with mysterious Chinese smugglers.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Go for Sisters, the 18th Sayles movie, is deceptively simple in structure..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..yet despite the class-conscious genre pleasures, independent cinema's foremost Zinn master feels slightly off his game..”
by David Fear [Time Out New York]
“..because the movie comes to us from John Sayles, the mechanical plotting fades into the background as the personal connections become increasingly compelling..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
