1829 - Your Sister's Sister
This film was a lovely little surprise. I'm a fan of Lynn Shelton, so I was happy to see that this was on Netflix. I'm a fan of Mark Duplass as well as Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt. It's a pretty simple premise - two best friends of the opposite sex are mourning the loss of his brother/her ex, and when he ends up sleeping with her sister they have to deal with their true feelings for one another. There's a lot more than that going on, but that's the gist. It's a simple little love story, but with some fantastic acting and really wonderfully honest moments. I love that Shelton has created this career where she goes and works on series as a director and then comes back and does these wonderfully intimate little pieces. Well done, her!
See this film - it's a beautiful little character piece and well worth your time!
