Five Favorite Films with Mark Duplass
The star of Your Sister's Sister and Safety Not Guaranteed on his five favorite sibling movies.
One of the breakout stars of the "mumblecore" movement that evolved during the mid-2000s, Mark Duplass has gone from writing, directing and starring in no-budget independent films to successfully adapting his brand of comedy-drama for a (relatively more) mainstream audience. Duplass and his brother/collaborator Jay scored indie hits with 2010's Cyrus and this year's Jeff, Who Lives At Home, while as an actor he's currently starring as a self-styled time traveler in the critical fave Safety Not Guaranteed.
This week, Duplass looks to continue his fertile run with Your Sister's Sister, Humpday director Lynne Shelton's well-reviewed comedy which finds him caught in a love triangle with two sisters -- played by Emily Blunt and Rosemary DeWitt. To mark the movie's opening, Duplass shared his Five Favorite "sibling" Films with us -- which is both fitting and revealing, considering his working dynamic with his brother and how much of their stuff revolves around the strains of family.
