With three pretty good actors such a bore of a movie. Only the script is to blame. The story compels the actors to punch way below their weight class. Time is better spent catching up on sleep or cleaning the oven.

This is a good indie dramedy. I like the three lead actors a lot, and I'm sure that influences my opinion of it; I would probably rate it a little lower with a different cast. I've watched it a couple of times. It feels like an autumn film--flannel and sweater wearing in Washington state.

A very fresh film with a strange and unexpected plot line. Every time I was on the edge of turning it off, some scene or even just one line, kept me watching. The writer took something so seemingly shallow, and plowed underneath until depth arose. The performances, which the film mainly revolves around, are very good. 7/10

I enjoyed this indie film. So, the plot develops slower then action films. It had a sweetness about it....people growing up. And, you get to see the San Juan Islands!!!

Nothing special here. If you are having trouble falling asleep, watch this movie.

Lumpish, unappealing Mark Duplass meets beguiling Rosemarie DeWitt in isolated cabin, night of love ensues, then... This movie hasn't much wit or brilliance going for it, although the two female leads do their best. Drink a lot of wine before watching this.

Excellent indie film filmed in beautiful Washington state coast. Has a realistic feel that few American films have. Love the scene of the main protagonist riding his cheap bike around the island. Interesting, though, that he needed to destroy his bike to finally grow up emotionally. It says much about American culture.

It's okay. It was a bit of a snooze fest.

I learned what a mumblecore film is, after watching this. Although the mumblecorps on the commentary are self-absorbed with their process, I still enjoyed the film. Authentic without being boring.

A slow starter, this indie film found a decent pace in the end, coming to a head when secrets are revealed. After the death of his brother Tom, Jack is suffering, and help comes in the form of Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris, played by the always lovely Emily Blunt. Rosemarie Dewitt of Mad Men fame plays Iris's sister, Hannah, a lesbian whose latest relationship has fallen apart. When Iris sends her friend Jack up to their family cottage to clear his head, Jack doesn't expect to find Hannah there. Hijinks (if you can call them that) ensue. This dramedy felt independent, but the vibe was good in the end and it was ultimately heartfelt. My only complaint? The pacing. The first half hour of YOUR SISTER'S SISTER is a slow burn, a whole lot of nothing until Iris shows back up, making the already brief ninety-minute flick hold the potential to be better if it was even shorter than its minute running time. For people who don't need the mainstream glitz, I'd recommend this film.

Good acting and a feel-good indie vibe. The story is original and creative, but ultimately becomes predictible.

A somewhat predictable but still enjoyable drama.

Your Sister’s Sister is one of the most complicated and unconventional stories of friendship made in recent film history. Mark Duplass co-stars with lovely ladies Emily Blunt (one could and should write a whole blog on her awesome indie filmography) and Rosemarie DeWitt (the female Kevin Bacon). Most of the film is set in a quaint cabin in the woods, but the story is far from horrific and refreshingly delightful. I whole-heartedly enjoyed it.

This film through fictional conversations has uniquely found a clever way to explores sexual attractions to spouses or partners of your siblings, etc. Plus an exploration as to whether it is ethical to trick a person into being your sperm donator. And to explore the importance to say you are sorry when you have hurt a loved one, and how to forgive such a transgressor. Fairly witty dialogue about modern relationships.

This movie gets off to an awkward start, but, hey, our hero is an awkward guy. Soon we find him taking off to one of the San Juan Islands, where to his surprise, he finds the sister of the friend who loaned him the cabin already in residence. What is most interesting is these three characters and their evolving relationships. The island is itself a character, deep and calm in its haunting winter beauty. This indie style NW Bellinghamptster hipster film is charming if you can relate to the lifestyle and have enjoyed time on a rural island. It certainly charmed me (eventually).

death and broken relationships leave two sisters and a best friend in various stages of grief, leading to some erratic behavior amongst the 3. by movie's end there has been some personal growth and insight - and a surprise.

Charming, light, beautifully filmed and some very good laughs. Saw at the Second Chance Film series on the university campus. Mark Duplass as Jack is very funny.

I saw this movie in the theatres, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. If you love seeing well-worded, well-acted, plays then this is a must. The singular setting makes for many delightfully awkward moments.

Really enjoyed this film. It's funny and interesting, and touching. A bit cheesy at times but strong enough writing that you can see past it.

this may be what is disparagingly called a chick flick. Very little plot, lots of talking about relationships and feelings.
I thought it would be about getting sober. turned out to be a celebration of alcoholism. Good scenes of san jaun islands, but mostly interior shots. If you don't like awkward triangles drinking and talking awkwardly about relationships this is one to miss.
