The fourth feature from Sundance award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton (HUMPDAY), YOUR SISTER'S SISTER is a tale of grief, romance and sibling rivalry that continues to showcase Shelton's extraordinary ability to portray human stories with a lot of depth but few thrills.
A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack (Mark Duplass) is an emotionally unstable slacker. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris (Emily Blunt) offers up her family cabin on an island in the Pacific Northwest so Jack can seek catharsis in solitude. Once there, however, he runs into Iris' sister Hannah, a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship who finds solace in the affable Tom's unexpected presence, and the two bond over a long night of drinking. The blurry evening concludes with an awkward sexual incident made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning which sets into motion a twisted tale of ever-complicated relationships.
With raw, funny and emotional performances from an all-star cast, Shelton once again honestly explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships while gently poking fun at her characters' predicaments.
