Huge, primal emotions - grief, unrequited love, the longing for family - are expressed here as the everyday, and it's in this that Your Sister's Sister finds its quiet power.

Watching mortals sort through relationships is not just an intelligent way to spend an afternoon -- it's downright refreshing. The characters are so honest, so thoughtful, and so utterly real that you feel genuine interest in their plight.

The story unfolds subtly and without apparent effort, but it's the humour that provides the warmth and, combined with fabulous and endearing performances, makes this a joy.

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.

Even when the story line tries to wrench the characters in a certain direction, they keep returning to something real and honest. I want these people to be my friends.

It's not rollicking summertime fare, and it won't offer easy answers. But it's an entertaining failure -- just like its characters.

There is some witty banter and some interesting developments. The acting is solid by the three leads.

What could have been trite male wish-fulfillment is instead beholden to genuinely messy revelations: life as a tattered, living quilt we sew and wear as one.

It's in the completely natural interactions between this gifted cast that the film really hits its groove.

This lo-fi comedy is big on charm but was a little too shaggy for my taste.

Although the action of Your Sister's Sister soars to an ultimately implausible conclusion, solid performances from Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt keep the overall piece afloat.

Your Sister's Sister is a fine piece of character observation. It's low-key, casual, and tremendously insightful. It won't be for everybody, but that's a good thing. It's a strong, focused piece of work.

One of the most purely pleasurable 'grown-up' films I've seen this year.

A trident of terrifically earthy performances grounds this sharp, twist-laden romantic comedy.

A wonderfully funny and uncharacteristically easy take on a genre that has been in disrepair for some time.
September 6, 2012
Deceptively meandering and unexpectedly complex, Your Sister's Sister combines a poignant, funny directness with a teasing incompleteness.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Right from the get-go, this indie American talkfest exudes a confidence, a composure and, dare I say it, a cool that extinguishes any cynicism in the room.

Structured more as a comedy than a drama, Your Sister's Sister is easy to like.

Everything that takes place on screen feels convincing as Shelton is more concerned with representing her characters truthfully rather than pushing an agenda.

The rom-com twists don't always work, but it's easy to fall for stars who clearly love acting together - particularly Blunt, who could make a paper bag dazzle.
