‘Raymond & Ray’ Trailer: Ewan McGregor And Ethan Hawke Are Siblings Looking To Bury The Past

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.
