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.

Emily Blunt is always watchable and a believeable actress, in this, she certainly doesn't disappoint.
Written and directed by the same person, it was a perfect film to get involved with, easy on the ear with no distracting music, only when really required with subtle silences that made a huge difference to viewing pleasure.
Completely enjoyable in its realism and entertainment.
Thank you for this breath of fresh air.
I generally like Emily Blunt as an actress but her accent is horrendous in this and made me squirm with embarrassment, along with the dreadful storyline and dialect. Speaking of the storyline...(spoiler alert) who gets to their age and doesn't know that condoms are coated in spermicide and so you're incredibly unlikely to get pregnant by piercing one?? Maybe I just get too caught up in the detail but it all seemed rather lame to me.
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. The conclusion, for me, descended into melodrama, and existing issues were artificially smoothed over in a way that didn't do justice to the complexity of the characters presented at the beginning of the film.
I enjoyed watching this film, but it isn't something that will stay with me, and it seems that the opportunity to make a really memorable film was missed.
'Your Sister's Sister' has the feel of a low-budget movie that concentrates on character, specifically three characters, whose lives intersect unsuspectingly when they each arrive at a family retreat. It's well filmed and despite suffering a little from the pit-fall of pompous, ridiculously articulate dialogue of characters in their 30's, the writing is very original and unpredictable. But it is, without doubt, the performances that demand the attention of the audience.
The performances are very naturalistic, especially that of Mark Durplass who is unquestionably the heart and soul of the entire movie, and the the viewer is very quickly drawn in to the mesmeric story and loathe for the film to end (after less than ninety minutes).
Highly recommended antidote to the typical cloying Hollywood fare.
