Movie Review: Your Sister’s Sister
A rom-com with a twist suitably describes the latest indie flick to hit the screens, Your Sister’s Sister.
Iris (Emily Blunt) sends her bestfriend Jack (Mark Duplass) to her family’s holiday house to reflect on his life & current wellbeing unaware that her sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) is already there recovering from a relationship break-up. The pair spends the first night getting to know each other over a bottle of tequila. This awkwardly hilarious night and a surprise visit from Iris unearths not so much a love triangle, but family betrayal & personal conflict in which all three struggle to deal with.
What sets this movie apart is its largely improvised script. This worked perfectly for the uncomfortable scenarios that play out. Mark Duplass’ wit and playful demeanour was the perfect casting and a standout of the three.
There were plenty of laugh-out-loud moments that would appeal to the early twenties and over. An all round enjoyable film with an ending that leaves you wanting more.
Your Sister’s Sister hits cinemas Thursday September 13th.
