Your Sister's Sister Movie Reviews
User reviews on Your Sister's Sister
I absolutely loved this film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is warm, naturally funny and it was a real pleasure to watch it. The film seemed to be effortless and it was emotionally charged and those emotions rang true because of the amazing cast who really got their characters and made the audience like those characters. The film was packed with smart observations about modern relationships and it was so easy and fun to watch. It is a little indie film that few people will see and I hope you will be one of them, trust me you will not regret it.
This is a great little independent gem from director Lynn Shelton. It kind of reminded of "Rachel's Getting Married" though that's more because it also stars Rosemarie Dewitt as the sister, except that in this one she's the unstable one who brings in all her issues and drama to the story. Mark Duplass plays his part with great understatement and ethos, making us believe that he really is the longtime best friend of Iris (Emily Blunt) who may also be secretly in love with him. That's probably why she flips out so much when she hears that Jack, whose brother died a year ago, and Hannah (who just broke up a seven-year relationship) find solace in each other. A great little slice-of-life movie that appeals to those who don't want to watch or are sick of the big summer action blockbusters. Highly recommended to fans of thoughtful and engaging cinema.
Emily Blunt is my favorite actress so I guess it's natural that I really loved this movie. It's about two best friends named Iris and Jack (Emily Blunt and Mark Duplass) who try to help each other when Jack's brother passes away. He can't seem to get his life back on track so he decides to do some soul searching in the Pacific Northwest where he meets Hannah, Iris's sister. The two end up being the solution each other's problems but Hannah comes between Iris and Jack.
It sounds kind of soap opera-y, but believe me it's anything but. The situation is handled with lots of comedy so you never feel that it's going to get overly dramatic. It has a very natural feel to the whole thing and you will totally buy the story and the performances. Definitely way better than Blunt's last movie, 'The Five Year Engagement'. Watch it!
I really liked this film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I thought the film was very natural and interesting and I had a great time watching it. The pacing of this film is perfect and every scene seems to be effortless and very realistic. The characters were very well developed and the lead actors were pitch perfect together it was truly a pleasure to watch them work. THe story is interesting and it is well told and I loved that this film had such a big heart, it did not feel forced it was very easy flowing and genuine. Overall, if you are looking for a romantic comedy that has no silly cliches and annoying characters and storylines, look no further.
