So many movies try to capture human relationships and fail miserably. A few come close. Your Sister's Sister nails it with grace, humor and winning charm.
91
Each an actor of distinctive delicacy, Duplass, DeWitt, and Blunt do some of their subtlest, most sweetly calibrated work ever, playing off one another with the kind of ease and trust that is, in itself, a demonstration of love.
88
This is a smart, moving film that's also very, very funny.
80
This film's only real stumble is its ending, which is so predictable it seems like a bit of a copout.

It's a mark of Shelton's ability to create living characters from seemingly minor shared moments -- the ones that wind up meaning everything.
75
The way this unfolds is surprisingly engaging.
75
Relationships are killers, and this tough, tender, deeply satisfying romantic comedy from writer-director Lynn Shelton is also bruisingly funny.
75
Shelton and her cast are so skillful that before long it seems we are not moviegoers watching a screen but flies on a wall witnessing real encounters and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
75
This extremely well-acted dramatic farce of grief and betrayal actually has a resonance beyond its target demographic.
70
Following up "Humpday" with another low-rent charmer, Lynn Shelton moves from two- to three-character dynamics.
70
Lynn Shelton's lovely tale of swirling feelings was shot in a mere 12 days, on a budget that must have been minuscule. A couple of minutes after it's started, though, you know you're in the presence of people who will surprise and delight you.
