Your Sister's Sister

I like the sound of this film with Emily Blunt on at the IFI at the moment.
Review from Le Cool."Lynn Shelton's low(ish) budget, partly improvised, off kilter rom-com is just the sort of film that people should see on a first date. It's intimate and charming with some genuine laugh-out-loud moments and enough poignancy to warm the heart. The female leads (Emily Blunt and Rosemarie deWitt) provide the eye-candy to balance Mark Duplass' hang-dog beer-bellied 'niche' appeal. It's a classic tale of boy meets dead brother's ex girlfriend, and her lesbian sister. Set in an isolated lakeside house in an attractively rainy north-west USA location, the action centres around the fall out from a drunken sexual encounter, a declaration of love and a possible pregnancy. The scenes featuring the sisters ring especially true, but there is an appealing sympathy between all three actors that make this a very watchable if not especially great film."
