Your Sister's Sister
- 90 min
- Directed by: Lynn Shelton
- Cast: Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tom Birbiglia
Iris (Blunt) invites her best friend Jack (Duplass) to stay with her and her sister Hannah (DeWitt) in a remote cabin on an island off America’s Northwest coast. There’s joy to be found in the naturalistic performances, funny and believable (and largely improvised) dialogue, and smart observations about modern relationships.
