For a film that deals with the various angles of grief and loss, and delves into the depths of facing emotions and maintaining relationships, check out Your Sister’s Sister.
A year has passed since Jack’s brother’s untimely death sent him into a misanthropic tailspin which alienated him from everyone in his life except Iris, his best friend and brother’s ex-girlfriend. In an effort to help him, Iris persuades Jack to take a sabbatical to her father’s desolate island home to gather his thoughts and come to grips with his grief.
There he finds Hannah, Iris’s sister who is also there to heal after a painful break up. The two bond over their misery until they do something that drives a wedge between them and forces the trio to fight for their relationships.
The film explores how people can construct their own version of family, when the one they had are lost. Jack had a strained, though somewhat loving, relationship with the brother he’s lost, and Iris and Hannah are half-sisters who find their own issues to deal with. Throughout the film, the flawed characters come together to get to know each other and form a strange but lasting bond.
