YOUR SISTER’S SISTER (2012, Lynn Shelton): 6/10
Pretty much every review on Metacritic said the same thing when this came out 6 months ago, and they’re right. The first two acts are quite strong — sharply realized dialogue, realistically funny hanging out, and some mystery under the surface. But then all the emoting happens, and everything turns conventional, slightly contrived, and skittish about really following dangerous directions. Emily Blunt had quite the 2012 with this, THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT, and LOOPER, so let’s see her take on a starring role worthy of her talents.
