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. Your Sister's Sister is rated R for language and some sexual content.

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

The provided synopsis at the top of the page makes it sound really schlocky, but it's actually pretty good. Interesting characters with interesting reactions to the unexpected and unwanted twists and turns in their lives.

I really liked this movie. Thought it had a very unique storyline. Also enjoyed the actors.

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.
