Your Sister's Sister (R)

Quicklook Rating★★★★

synopsis

A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack is an emotionally unstable slacker. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris 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, a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship who finds solace in the affable Tom's unexpected presence, and the two bond over a long night of drinking. The blurry evening concludes with an awkward sexual incident made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning which sets into motion a twisted tale of ever-complicated relationships.

MovieGoer Review

Emily Blunt, Rosemary DeWitt and Mark Duplass carry this intimate indie with aplomb. Your Sister's Sister starts with a strange premise that could be the basis of a manic romcom, but is kept grounded by an excellent cast and script.
