I’m a little sleepy this morning because I stayed up until 3 am this morning watching a FANTASTIC movie last night. It really was very irresponsible of me since I’m staring a 20 page paper in the face (due tomorrow; but don’t worry, I have 7 pages!). Here is a brief synopsis of Your Sister’s Sister, starring Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass (adorable), and Rosemarie DeWitt:
Jack (Mark D.) is having a rough time following the death of his brother, whom Iris (Emily B.) briefly dated. Jack and Iris are BFFs and since Jack is kind of losing his mind, Iris suggests that he bike up to her parents’ cabin on an island in the Seattle area. Might I mention that the scenery is so beautiful. Anyway, when Jack gets to the cabin, which he thinks is going to be empty, he sees a woman inside (without pants on). After a minor freakout involving an oar (just watch the movie), Jack finds out that the woman in Iris’s sister Hannah. They end up drinking tequila together and swapping sob stories and even though Hannah is a lesbian, she agrees to have sex with Jack. I don’t want to give away the good bits, but trouble ensues when Iris shows up at the cabin the morning after to hang out with Jack.

In short, this is a sweet and poignant story of love, family and friendship that brought me tears and laughs and a swelling heart full of love. Mark Duplass is perfect for this movie and he’s so funny. If you watch The League, he is Pete and he’s hilarious. He is also in Safety Not Guaranteed, also starring Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza (I LOVE APRIL) which is getting awesome reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and is soon to be watched by moi.
