Product Description

A heart-warming comedy about friendship, love and life, Your Sister’s Sister stars Emily Blunt and Mark Duplass in the new feature from Lynn Shelton.

When Jack (Duplass) finds himself down on his luck, best friend Iris (Blunt) suggests he spend a weekend at her family's remote island retreat. Upon arriving Jack discovers Iris’s sister Hannah (Rosemarie Dewitt) had the same idea and the two find solace together in sharing their issues and drunkenly kiss. When Iris arrives the next morning unannounced she further complicates matters for an already confused and bumbling Jack.

3.0 out of 5 stars A halfway house 28 Nov 2012
By Laura T VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This watchable film is slight on plot, but, initially, at least, strong on characterisation. Kicking off with a memorable opening scene in which Jack (Mark Duplass) interrupts a memorial party for his brother, Tom, with an eulogy to Tom's flaws, declaring drunkenly that they need to remember 'the man', not an idealised version of their friend. His long-time best friend, Iris (Emily Blunt) dispatches him to her family's island cottage to have some time to himself, where he meets her half-sister, Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt). As they down a bottle of tequila, Hannah and Jack reveal more to each other than they had anticipated, and when Iris turns up the next day, a train of surprising events is set in motion.

I'm a big fan of observational films that focus on detail and character interaction (I liked 'Rachel Getting Married', 'Archipelago' and 'Another Year' for these reasons), and the opening scenes made me hopeful that 'Your Sister's Sister' would be of that ilk. Unfortunately, after Iris arrives at the cottage, I thought that this film went rapidly downhill, and ended up becoming an uncomfortable compromise between a predictable Hollywood melodrama and a more edgy art-house film, neither enjoyably trashy nor particularly thoughtful. The three lead actors all deliver strong performances, but unfortunately, the second half of the script rushes their character development so fast it's beyond salvation. A key reconciliation is portrayed through a montage, and the ending of the film was frustrating - not because I was desperate to know what happened next, but because the possibility it hinges on was so slight it was hardly believable that the characters were placing so much weight on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable 15 Dec 2012
By Another Weasley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is not your traditional rom-com; in fact at times it is quite depressing! It is quite a slow burner and it feels low-budget/indie/arty but then that is ok as it is more about the characters and the plot rather than the production and I guess it works quite well. The film passed the time but at the end of the day I can't say I would watch it again. It is not a bad film but it's not a particularly great film.

There is promise; however it never quite reaches anything. The plot is ok but predictable and the "comedy" is hit and miss. Sometimes it seems that the film is trying to be a little bit too clever for itself and does not quite know which level of audience to aim towards. There is a lot of swearing in it as well, not always necessary to the plot. Perhaps it makes the characters more realistic? However it is not always needed. I don't mind swearing in a film but some people may be put off by it.

The three actors are good but I can't say I warmed to any of the characters as I found them quite frustrating and annoying, it was difficult to feel sympathy for any of them and the issues between them seemed to be glossed over quite quickly. Also the film ends really abruptly and it feels half done! I understand it is left open-ended for the audience to decide what they think happened next but I felt a bit cheated as I had sat through the film expecting some sort of end and didn't really get it. I wish I hadn't bothered!

Overall I can't recommend this film to watch, however I can't say avoid it. Sorry, this sounds like a rubbish review but the film is quite bland so I find it difficult to say much about it! At the end of the day I found myself looking at the clock wondering how long it had left and was quite deflated at the end of the film.

Format:DVD
Excruciatingly bad dialogue, poorly acted. Plot is utter drivel. You will eject this dvd after 15 mins like we did.

Your Sister's Sister, released in 2012, is a very watchable film, though not unduly mentally challenging. The plot can be summed up very simply. Jack is in love with Iris, but sleeps with her sister Hannah, a lesbian with her own personal agenda. That's about it really as the rest of the film is almost exclusively about the relationships between these three which are complex given what has happened. Alright, perhaps there is a little more to it than that, but that is the basic bones of the film and the rest is really setting the scene and adding the flesh to the bones.

Although not overly complicated, this is a film which holds the interest and the interaction between the main characters is sometimes poignant and often humorous, since each has their own personal issues to deal with. This film is all about the three main characters who are very well cast in their roles. I thought Emily Blunt of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen fame, did particularly well as iris, although Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt also put up creditable performances.

This is not a film which has much action, but is all about people dealing with, and coming to terms with difficult situations and finding common ground. This is a film which has been well directed and the subject matter treated sensitively. Probably not the most memorable film you are going to watch this year, but certainly reasonable entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quietly watchable...
Love it. And not just because the utterly gorgeous Emily Blunt in it. Lovely performances all round, simple, effective, well-balanced and steadily paced dynamics throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, refreshing
Simple, good acting, watchable characters and beautiful scenery. It is just three people in a house, but I don't have a great attention span and this kept me watching. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
Really lovely film, Emily Blunt is great in this.
Great to watch if you want a feel good film. Not a typical romantic comedy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slow
Far fetched and slow with disappointing ending. Not what I had had hoped for, and I often quite like slow films.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK
A gentle even paced film that is more drama than comedy. A bit too arty but not unpleasant. No requirement for a cushion to hide behind !

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth wasting your time
Slow, dialogue was pretty crap, and ending was a total anti-climax. The two female leads were well acted, the guy however I thought could have been better in parts. Read more
