Your Sister’s Sister
Ater a year, Jack is still struggling to come to terms with his brother’s death. His best friend, Iris (played by Blunt), insists that he has a ‘retreat’ at her dad’s island cabin. But when he gets there Jack finds Iris’ sister, Hannah, also trying to get some time alone. As they are both emotionally weak, Jack and Hannah sleep together. When Iris joins them, everything becomes complicated.
This is an interesting little film. There’s not much laugh-out-loud humour, but it is quite quirky nonetheless. We haven’t seen Blunt in a rom com for a while (The Five Year Engagement, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), and she’s as enchanting as usual. It has a very contained and focussed script with just enough room for three. This is not a ‘block buster’ film by any means, but it’s gentle and easy on the eyes. Look out for the ending.
