Your Sister’s Sister
Your Sister's Sister“Devastated by the loss of his brother,
  a young man is offered the chance to
  unwind and come to terms with his death
  by staying at his best friend
s familys
  remote island retreat — little realising
  that he will not be alone and that his life
  is about to change dramatically in the
  funny and thought-provoking Your
  Sister
s Sister..
.”

CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF THEIR DEAR FRIEND Tom (Mike Harring in photos) on the first anniversary of his death, a group of friends come together to reminisce and are taken aback by the bluntness of his brother Jack (Mark Duplass), who paints a far from rosy picture of his late sibling in an emotional outburst.


Realising that it is grief that makes Jack appear to be so critical of his late brother, his best friend Iris (the charming Golden Globe Award-winner Emily Blunt), who had ended her relationship with Tom some time before his death, suggests he should go to her father's remote island home for a short break to find himself again in peace and quiet.

Oh-my-God,
Your Sister’s Sister is
surprisingly fascinating,
sad and funny
as human emotions
are laid bare...”
But as he arrives at the house, Jack realises someone else is there. Iris's elder sister Hannah (the delightful Rosemarie Dewitt) has split from her long-term girlfriend, who was unfaithful to her with a younger woman, and needs some space to nurse her broken heart.

Within hours they end up in bed together; but does Hannah have an ulterior motive for the seduction and will Jack find himself regretting the temptation? Further problems come about when Iris turns up unannounced the following morning.

Awkward moments turn into deep-seated complications as secrets are shared, boundaries are crossed and some pretty heated moments follow in this emotionally twisted tale of siblings and best friends; loyalty and love.

Opening to rave reviews upon its nationwide cinema release earlier this year (2012), Shelton once again honestly explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships while gently poking fun at her characters' predicaments. Oh-my-God, Your Sister's Sister is surprisingly fascinating, sad and funny as human emotions are laid bare. As you'd expect there's sexual content and references and some bad language.
