Editorial Reviews

A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack (Mark Duplass Humpday), an emotionally unstable slacker, is offered by Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris (Emily Blunt, The Adjustment Bureau, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) to take a vacation at her family cabin in the Pacific Northwest so he can seek catharsis in solitude. Once there, however, Jack runs into Iris' sister Hannah, a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship and who finds solace in the affable Jack's unexpected presence. After a long night of drinking that ends with an awkward sexual incident, Jack's bumpy road to recovery is made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning and the progression of ever-complicated relationships that is then set into motion. With raw, funny and emotional performances from an all-star cast, director Lynn Shelton (My Effortless Brilliance) once again honestly explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships with remarkable humor, sensitivity and warmth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 3 performance drama July 10, 2012
Format:DVD
"Your Sister's Sister" (90 min.) starts off with an eye-popping 5 min. prologue: we see a group of people mourning someone's passing, and just when one of them is giving a eulogy on how great a guy that person was, Jack (played by Mark Duplass) interupts and gives his own (less idyllic) version of that man, who turns out to be his brother. Iris (played by Emily Blunt), who is Jack's best friend and was the girlfriend of his brother, eventually talks to Jack to control his emotions.

Flash forward: at Iris' suggestion, Jack agrees to retreat to the country house of Iris' family, to 'clear his head' and some much needed 'me time'. Much to Jack's surprise, it turns out that Iris' sister Hannah (played by Rosemarie DeWitt) is also there, also in need of some 'me time' after just coming out of a 7 year relationship. The next 20 min. or so nothing happens, other than Hannah and Jack sitting at the dinner table and talking, talking, talking (it's done brilliantly). Things develop from there, as Iris then shows up as well. To give away much more of the plot would really ruin your viewing experience.

This is a talk movie (filmed theatre-like) about relationships. There are no pyrotechnics, no special effects, no CGIs. Instead, this movie centers on 3 acting performances, and each of them is as good as the other. Emily Blunt continues her impressive streak of recent performances (just this year we've seen her in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, The Five Year Engagement, and now this). But the ultimate credit must go to writer-director Lynn Shelton, who brings it all home. This is MILES away from your standard Hollywood fare. If you are in the mood for a good indie movie that has no action whatsover but focuses on relationships, come on over, you will very much enjoy this. Meanwhile "Your Sister's Sister" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong suspense drives a modest little gem August 30, 2012
Format:DVD
If I'd heard the plot of this before seeing it, I'd have passed. It's tough to summarize--the magic is in the watching. So I'd have missed this little marvel of writing, acting, and directing. Jack is unsettled a year after his brother's death, and his best friend Iris (the dead brother's ex-girl friend? wife? doesn't really matter)sends him off to her family's cottage in the woods to regroup in peace and quiet. But Iris' sister Hannah has also taken refuge there, and Jack and Hannah console each other. At least we think that's what we saw. When Iris shows up next day, a lot of unsaid things float around, only some of which the audience knows. Because each of the three has a secret, because almost all the action/drama takes place in a short time, in a small place, and because the acting and directing are top-notch, this study in the complex relationship between three decent, though often confused, people, commands the viewer's interest. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next once one of them knew something else about the other two. Nor did I see the various secrets coming (all right, I'm a little slow). Everything you need to know to understand and appreciate it is included, but not a smidgen more. The filmmaker gives you credit for being quick on the uptake--I loved that.
Many a big-budget film would kill for the kind of hold this movie casts on an audience, for what looked like not much money. Just goes to show, explosions and special effects are no substitute for a compelling human interest plot and great execution.
Note: if you steer clear of movies with lesbians or occasional strong language, you should probably skip this. But you'll miss something really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Comedy it hit every note. November 3, 2012
By Kicharn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie had a few brilliant twists and turns, and I was laughing through a lot of it. It was really a rather perfect movie for what it was trying to do. I went into it not expecting much, but I left grading it a 9 or 10 out of 10. I only have a handful of movies that rate that highly on my list. Your sister's sister is actually a great movie to watch with a significant other as it shows a lot of different kinds of relationships. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys just a very entertaining movie where the acting and directing were matched well together.

By Flippy
Format:DVD
I agree with another reviewer, this film avoids taking risks. I had seen the trailer not too long ago and was looking forward to the rental. When I eventually saw the film, I found it scattered and dull.

First things first, it begins on an interesting note. Several friends have gathered to remember Jack's brother. They are drinking beer and remembering the best of this man, telling comical and heart warming stories. But Jack (Duplass) won't have it. He knew his brother too well and brings a note of reality to the memorial. He can't glorify his brother because he knew this guy, grew up under him. His brother was supposedly altruistic and volunteered, a great guy because he knew it would get him laid. His brother wasn't a saint but a self-serving ass like everyone else.

In a friendly aside, Iris (Blunt) suggests Jack get away from everything. She cares for him. She dated Jack's brother. Jack is part of her world. She basically has the prescription: you're going to get on the ferry and go to my father's cabin.

Sounds like a plan, Jack. We, the audience, are on board. The movie feels right, natural.

Then, when he arrives at the cabin, it kind of just falters. We are immediately introduced to Hannah (DeWitt), Iris' sister who is staying at the cabin. Jack spies the sexy Hannah fresh from the shower through the back window. We see she is sensual and beautiful but this 'peeping tom' moment is awkward and forced and without believability. Of course he makes himself known, the derivative stumble, the crashing of something on the deck, she comes out ready to attack. Pretty cliched. After the awkward introductions, the two settle down to what feels like a college tequila drinking contest where the two actor's mail in their reason for being at the cabin.
