Your Sister's Sister Reviews
Weaknesses: Usually, these indie films are rife with charm, but there's not a lot to this one. Though it's considered a romantic comedy, there's not a lot of romance in it. Other than a few conversations, the Iris/Jack love story isn't fully developed. We just get the sense that they are simply friends until Iris flat out admits it to her sister. I wasn't a big fan of the ending. It wraps things up a bit too nicely considering everything that happened. Plus, the cliffhanger vibe didn't quite work for me.
Overall: A good movie with some strong dialogue and acting from the three leads. It can be a bit dull at points and the ending leaves something to be desired, but it's an easy watch that you probably won't regret.
Your Sister's Sister
Its key lies within the process of bonding that occurs so smoothly that one almost forgets that all of it is an act. Lynn Shelton has done a brilliant job on writing this screenplay and bring it alive on screen, which is not easy to execute especially such an eerie situation that is created among characters where he literally plays with them like a puppet. The performance objective is what itches in the throat in here for no matter how much Emily Blunt must invest on it, she is just a supporting actor the rest of it actually lies upon Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt; the lead characters, who could have done better. Your Sister's Sister may have a similar tone to "dysfunctional family" genre but it certainly is more than that especially in its high pitched dramatic sequences in its last act where all the sub-plots merges in.

- I really enjoyed this one, a indie film hidden gem. It primarily features 3 characters, and all the actors are excellent in their roles. It's is a bit of a slice of life following these 3 in a complicated situation, it has moments of bot drama and humour. Highly recommended!
