Your Sister's Sister (2011)
14 November 2012
Conclusion: One of the topics extensively discussed in the commentaries is how Your Sister's Sister was salvaged by Rosemarie DeWitt, who stepped in as Hannah at the last minute when scheduling conflicts forced Rachel Weisz to drop out.
Excerpt: There’s probably not a good time for a man to question a group of mourners’ rosy memories of his brother, but a memorial service, even one a year removed from the brother’s death, must count as one of the least appropriate times.
Excerpt: The friends have gathered because it's been a year since Tom's death. Al (Mike Birbiglia) gets up to say a few words about what a great guy Tom was, so kind, so thoughtful, so remarkable. From across the room, Tom's brother Jack (Mark Duplass) objects.
Summary: After putting male insecurity under a comic microscope in "Humpday," writer-director Lynn Shelton hands the fairer sex a more prominent role in "Your Sister's Sister," another winning study of relational boundaries crossed and sexual dares gone awry.
Summary: As strong an argument as one could imagine for the "mumblecore" film movement spearheaded by this film's director (Lynn Shelton) and star/producer (Mark Duplass), Your Sister's Sister is one of the most purely pleasurable "grown-up" films I've seen this year.
Excerpt: 'Written and directed by…' is the first credit. Ironic considering this film seems to be stripped of all script and direction. Applying their craft in the purest form, the cast improvise each scene and create a compelling and honest story of love and relationships. This style may turn some off.
