Mark Duplass and Emily Blunt are seriously funny in the trailer for Your Sister's Sister
Lynn Shelton has directed three very good indie films and looks to continue that trend with YOUR SISTER'S SISTER. Starring Mark Duplass, Emily Blunt, and Rosemarie DeWitt, this looks like a sweetly funny and serious movie in the vein of DAN IN REAL LIFE.
Plot: A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack (Duplass) is an emotionally unstable slacker. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris (Blunt) offers up her family cabin on an island in the Pacific Northwest so Jack can seek catharsis in solitude. Once there, however, he runs into Iris' sister Hannah, a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship who finds solace in the affable Tom's unexpected presence, and the two bond over a long night of drinking. The blurry evening concludes with an awkward sexual incident made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning which sets into motion a twisted tale of ever-complicated relationships.
I am a big Emily Blunt fan and Mark Duplass has locked down the "21st Century Everyman" character. There is definitely a chemistry in this film that works and I would love to see all of these actors on screen more.
YOUR SISTER'S SISTER opens June 15, 2012.
