People have been saying for years that Ethan Hawke and Ewan McGregor could play brothers if they wanted to. And yet, somehow, they’ve never actually starred in a movie together. Well, fans get everything they’ve wanted with Raymond & Ray, in which Hawke and McGregor play siblings looking to bury the past, and finding it to be very difficult.
Directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Mother & Child), the film finds Hawke and McGregor as half-brothers reunited for their father’s funeral, a cruel man they’re eager to leave in the past.
The film is written and directed by Garcia, a humanist filmmaker who recently worked with McGregor on Last Days in the Desert. Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuaron is aboard as a producer.
Raymond & Ray streams on Apple TV+ on October 21st.
“Raymond & Ray” follows half-brothers Raymond and Ray, who have lived in the shadow of a terrible father. Somehow, they still each have a sense of humor, and his funeral is a chance for them to reinvent themselves. There’s anger, there’s pain, there’s folly, there might be love, and there’s definitely grave-digging.
