Cast: Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt
Director: Lynn Shelton
Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt star in this threesome which is probably one of the most charming films of the year.
From Humpday director Lynn Shelton, comes this tale of the trio and whose lives are changed by a trip.
A brilliantly hilarious and rubber faced hangdog, Duplass stars as Jack, whose brother Tom died one year ago; Jack's struggling to cope so his best friend Iris (the ever luminous Blunt) sends him off to a family cabin to get some headspace time and to hopefully, change his outlook on life.
But when he arrives there, he finds Iris's gay sister Hannah (DeWitt) there nursing a break up.
One bottle of tequila and a drunken fumble later finds the duo in all manner of problems. Particularly when Iris shows up unannounced...
Jack's plan? To keep the truth from Iris and just get through the next few days. However, both Iris and Hannah have designs on Jack which he could never have expected.
Deftly funny, smartly written and with a cast that underplays each line and scene so beautifully, Your Sister's Sister is a gently amusing, utterly engaging and totally enjoyable visit to the cinema.
Clever writing which feels real is Shelton's trade in this - and when matched up with the rising brilliance of a deadpan and yet farcical Duplass (who you really should see in Safety Not Guaranteed when it shows up), it's a winning combination. It's funny, charming and hits everything it aims for.
Even when things take a turn for the apparently more serious, Your Sister's Sister never loses the plot - or the audience.
This goofily charming movie is an acutely observed three hander which is poignant when it needs to be and totally winning from beginning to end.
