Story


Following the success of her Sundance award winning film "Humpday", Lynn Shelton weaves another compellingly human story in "Your Sister's Sister". Lost in an emotional funk one year after his brother's death, Jack (Mark Duplass) takes his best friend Iris (Emily Blunt) up on her offer for a reflective week of solitude at her family's remote island retreat. Upon arriving at the house, Jack discovers that Iris' sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) had the same idea, and the two spend an awkward evening together. Iris shows up the next morning unannounced, setting in motion an emotionally twisted tale of sisters, brothers, and best friends. Shelton once again honestly explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships while gently poking fun at her characters' predicaments.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..so beautifully acted by its three principals that it's a shame the film eventually threatens to fall apart under the weight of an excess of plot twists and hedged bets..”
by Kenji Fujishima [Slant Magazine]
“..stick to the script, and a slightly richer visual palette could have broadened this worthy tale's appeal..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..boasts solid appeal for indie fans and mainstream moviegoers interested in trying a safe, tasty item from the smarthouse menu..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
