Little Sister subverts indie drama expectations with a refreshingly off-kilter look at family dynamics that makes its points through solid characterizations and earnest effort.

I feel this movie. And I highly doubt I'm alone in this.
[A] fine, darkly poignant tale of a conflicted young nun-in-training facing her own version of "hope and change."
Zach Clark goes down dark-comic alleys, but he's made a transfixing film about a dysfunctional family that looks touchingly and unnervingly like yours and mine.
A quiet and gentle film, emotional but not manipulatively sentimental, sad but not nihilistic, Marilyn Manson epigram and Goth-font chapter markers notwithstanding.
Flirting with sitcommy high jinks, Clark instead gives us a bittersweet cocktail of soul-weary defeat and unassuming vigor.
A strange, spiky movie that refuses to beg for our affection, "Little Sister," the fifth feature from Zach Clark, molds the classic homecoming drama into a quirky reconciliation between faith and family.
Clark's study on nostalgia is periphery to how his study on the cumulative contradictions that shape and define our worldviews.
It is the way Clark deconstructs the impact of the past on the present that remains most impressive, inviting the audience to come along by placing the film in such a relatively recent context that can still feel so far away.
A charming independent drama that deserves to cross over into the wider populace. Engaging, quirky, funny and emotional, Little Sister is an absolute delight. An instant kooky cult classic.
Add to the well written screenplay a cast that seems catered to this cadence and the result is a family that is almost too familiar for comfort.
What really makes Little Sister work-what makes it such a refreshing joy-is the script. This is a forgiving film.
It's conservative in a way that could only stem from rebellious roots.
