Forgiveness may be good, but it's not easily come by. And in the upcoming drama Raymond & Ray, eponymous and estranged half-brothers Raymond (Ewan McGregor) and Ray (four-time Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke) must put in the work — sweat, tears, and all — when their abusive father's final wish is that they dig his grave themselves.

"Growing up, my brother and I, we were connected at the hip, and then just being near each other is a reminder of all that pain," Hawke's Ray says in the trailer. Later, he tells his brother, "It's gonna take a whole lot more than a hole in the ground to get the old man out of your head."

Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón is a producer on the film, which is written and directed by Colombia-born filmmaker Rodrigo García (2005's Nine Lives and 2015's Last Days in the Desert, the latter of which also starred McGregor). The cast includes Sophie Okonedo (an Oscar nominee for Hotel Rwanda), Maribel Verdú, and Vondie Curtis-Hall.

Raymond & Ray, which premiered during this year's Toronto International Film Festival, is in theaters Oct. 14 and streaming on Apple TV+ on Oct. 21. Watch the trailer below.
