This film is a wonderful study of family dynamics and personal growth.

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.

Clark's study on nostalgia is periphery to how his study on the cumulative contradictions that shape and define our worldviews.

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.
February 14, 2018
It's conservative in a way that could only stem from rebellious roots.
August 10, 2017
Little Sister is an indie family drama about change and reconciliation, but it's instilled with a poignant regard for the moment, too .
August 7, 2017
Little Sister is available widely now and is well worth your time.

The Quirky Family Dramedy is a familiar genre, but director-screenwriter Zach Clark has made a charming and well crafted version of it in Little Sister.
March 20, 2017
Clark closely observes all these character dynamics with an empathetic eye, a skewed sense of humor, and a freewheeling inventiveness that keeps things refreshingly off-balance without losing its emotional heart.

While Little Sister has its strong points, such as a quietly emotive lead performance from Addison Timlin as a nun-in-training visiting her family, the movie tries to juggle far too many narrative balls.

[Little Sister] contains multitudes about religious investigation and personal growth without ever underlining the ideas too much, but Clark injects enough genuine warmth and grace notes to make the journey feel as fleet as possible.

I feel this movie. And I highly doubt I'm alone in this.
October 27, 2016
[A] fine, darkly poignant tale of a conflicted young nun-in-training facing her own version of "hope and change."
October 26, 2016
Clark's film uses its 2008 setting as a backdrop for a funny, wistful little comedy-drama about family members learning to overcome themselves and reconnect with each other. Can we reconcile with those who know us only too well? Yes, we can.

Zach Clark [lets] his idiosyncratic characters carry the film in a way many filmmakers wouldn't dare.
October 15, 2016
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.
October 14, 2016
Little Sister delivers a charming black sheep tale rich with tenderness, raw with pain, and spiked with humor.
October 14, 2016
A quiet and gentle film, emotional but not manipulatively sentimental, sad but not nihilistic, Marilyn Manson epigram and Goth-font chapter markers notwithstanding.
