Your Sister’s Sister

Iris invites her friend Jack to stay at her family’s island getaway after the death of his brother.

Emily Blunt's buoyant Iris dispatches best friend Jack (Mark Duplass) – still despondent a year after the death of this brother – for a soul-renewing sojourn at her family's remote holiday cabin. When he arrives, he finds her sister Hannah (Rosemary DeWitt) already there.

They share a tequila-fuelled one-night stand (lasting, hilariously, all of eight seconds): and then torment each other with the ifs, whys and buts of telling Iris when she turns up unannounced. Take two sisters and one love interest and you've got the classic play of betrayal and forgiveness, the rivalry that's only paired with siblings, love that's not returned, and all sorts of human relatable fears. Lynn Shelton's charming film is a captivating examination of criss-crossing relationships permeated by incisive performances.
