The Indie Film Corner: “Your Sister’s Sister”

in Arts/Contributors by

“Your Sister’s Sister” from The Indie Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts Wednesday, July 25 at 2 p.m.
Synopsis: A year after his brother Tom’s death, Jack is still struggling emotionally. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, Tom’s best friend, Iris, offers up her father’s cabin on an island in the Pacific Northwest so Jack can seek resolution in solitude. Once there, however, he runs into Iris’ sister Hannah who is reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship and finds solace in Tom’s unexpected presence. A blurry evening of drinking concludes with an unplanned sexual happening, made even more embarrassing by Iris’ sudden presence at the cabin the next morning. A twisting tale of ever-complicated relationships is set in motion with hilarious and emotional consequences. The outcome of the triangle is in doubt from beginning to end.
Ratings & Reviews:  Internet rating sites, IMDb: 6.7; Rotten Tomatoes: Critics: 86/Audience: 80 Very Good marks. Critics: USA Today: “…romantic, funny, surprising and thoroughly involving … a rare film”; Wall Street Journal: “… lovely tale of swirling feelings was shot in a mere 12 days, on a budget that must have been minuscule. A couple of minutes after it’s started, though, you know you’re in the presence of people who will surprise and delight you.”
Previewer Comments: This is a warm dramatic comedy that is acted so well you will understand and identify with each character and their situation intimately. The scenery is beautiful, the relationship issues real and deep with emotion and layers of conflict. This film is acted so naturally and the character’s dialogue works so well, you will feel like a fly on the wall experiencing real people, real emotions, and real issues. Featured and well reviewed at many Indie film showings in U.S. and Canada, it now has reached limited distribution in the U.S. and UK. Try not to miss it.
Rated: R for language and some sexual content.
