5.0 out of 5 stars Warm, Funny, Human and Very Good, 24 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Your Sister's Sister [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The titles of this come up in pink, so I assumed this would be what is oft referred to as a `chick-flick', but actually it isn't as it works on so many levels. We start off at party on the anniversary of the death of Tom as a sort of eulogy. Tom's brother is Jack (Mark Duplass) who loses the plot at the gathering and it is obvious to best friend and ex to his brother, Iris (Emily Blunt - `The Young Victoria' and `The Adjustment Bureau') that he needs some `me time'. So she offers him a stay at her father's isolated holiday home.

So deciding she is right he sets out for the isolation of the house. Only when he gets there it is occupied by Iris's younger and lesbian sister - Hannah (Rosemarie Dewitt) who has split up with her partner. After initial awkwardness, they decide to drink some tequila to break the ice, actually a lot of tequila and thereby de frosting quite a lot. Then Iris turns up and adds a whole new dimension to the three way `relationship'.

To say any more would stray into the realm of plot spoiling, but this film is just a fantastic gem; the sort of journey where the getting there is better than the actual destination. It is clever, funny, warm, intelligent and really human without straying into the path of sugariness that can often spoil a good film. This is in great part due to the director and writer of the screenplay, Lynn Shelton, who is also an accomplished actress in her own right. The cinematography is also excellent and even the music is good especially the acoustic guitar bits. So I really did love this film, and whilst it could be seen to be aimed at a feminine market, I think it works across more than one genre and as such deserves all the praise it has received so far and a fair bit more, highly recommended and watch with someone you love as it will make you feel all fuzzy - sorry I am getting schmaltzy now, I think I liked it a bit too much.
