Your Sister's Sister

3

Mark Duplass plays a man struggling with grief as he stays with two sisters

Emily Blunt's wry, heartfelt turn stands out in director Lynn Shelton’s follow-up to 2009 Sundance darling Humpday.

Blunt’s Iris invites bereaved best friend Jack (Mark Duplass) to her family’s secluded island cabin for some alone time; what he finds instead is Iris’ troubled sister (Rosemarie Dewitt).

Shelton tackles vast emotions - grief, loneliness, longing - with subtle strokes, allowing her to get away with the odd melodramatic lapse.

But most of all it’s the cast who shine here, their every interaction crackling with endearing, authentic spontaneity.
