Movie Info

A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack (Mark Duplass) is still struggling emotionally. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, Tom's best friend Iris (Emily Blunt) offers up her family cabin on an island in the Pacific Northwest so Jack can seek catharsis in solitude. Once there, however, he runs into Iris' sister Hannah (Rosemarie Dewitt) who is reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship and finds solace in Tom's unexpected presence. A blurry evening of drinking concludes with an awkward sexual incident, made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning. A twisted tale of ever-complicated relationships is set in motion with raw, hilarious and emotional performances from the all-star cast. -- (C) IFC

It's comforting to watching dramatic and comic fiction regarding the things some of us actually have to deal with in life. When done right, those kinds of films are worth your time. YOUR SISTER'S SISTER happens to be one of them.

Movies that start well and end badly occur often enough, and yet even knowing that is no preparation for what happens to Your Sister's Sister.

It certainly shows that fine films don't need big budgets, capturing some sweet lightning in an arresting bottle indeed.

There's a nice, loose-limbed improvisatory feeling to "Your Sister's Sister," a quality that identifies it as the work of artisans, not assembly-line professionals.

This is a smart, moving film that's also very, very funny.

A good low budget movie, but the little twist at the end really annoyed me, as did Iris's acceptance of it. To me, what Hannah did was really wrong and unforgivable. There is sisterly love, and then there is "give me a break!". Sure, she didn't know of Iris's feelings at the time, but what about jack's rights? If the movie was reversed with a man doing that out of desperation, I don't think people would think that story was nice! I really hope that up in the air ending did not see Hannah rewarded! Dubious morals aside, nice acting. Rosemarie deWitt and Emily Blunt are convincing as sisters. It's a slow moving story and very talk driven. Won't be for all tastes.
