Secretive siblings: Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt hush-hush on 'Your Sister's Sister' -- FIRST LOOK


Here’s what the stars of Your Sister’s Sister can say about the movie:

“I don’t know how much I can tell you about the story. We’ve been told to keep that under wraps,” says Emily Blunt, who plays Iris, the more mature and successful of the eponymous siblings.

Rosemarie DeWitt, who is the troubled, chaotic one, Hannah, also hems and haws before, finally telling EW: “The situation itself is the spoiler.”

What is so hush-hush about this tale of two Seattle sisters and the male friend (Mark Duplass) who comes between them? Or does one of them come between him and the other?

Consider the fact that it’s from director Lynn Shelton, the filmmaker behind Humpday (also starring Duplass), the Sundance film about two straight guys who consider making a gay porn film together because they need the money. Suddenly, anything is possible. The official synopsis describes it as an “emotionally twisted tale of sisters, brothers, and best friends.”

Now maybe you’re imagining something too twisted?


But it may not be as scandalous as all that. We’ll have to wait for Your Sister’s Sister to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival next month to find out, and even then, isn’t it nice to not know everything about a movie walking in?

The stars aren’t completely coy. Here’s what they can share about the set-up:

Duplass plays Blunt’s best friend, and since his life is a mess, she encourages him to take some time away from it all, alone out at her father’s vacation house on an island off the coast of Seattle.

Once there, he finds that her sister, played by DeWitt, is in similar circumstances, and also thought it would be a good place to escape for a while. “She’s the sister who doesn’t have her s— together,” says DeWitt. “She’s pretty lost in life, and trying to figure things out. She’s about to go through a big transition. They kind of mirror each other for different reasons. She’s completely had the rug pulled out from under her. She’s trying to nurse her wounds, figure her life out. And this guy shows up and they’re oil and water.”

Eventually, her other sister arrives at the home too.

Soooo, what happens next… ? The obvious guess is love triangle, right? “It’s not as clear cut as that,” says Blunt.

“Basically in this little piece, everyone has got a secret,” she adds. “Everyone trying to keep their secret. It’s a comedy in many ways, a comedy of errors, but also very poignant. It’s an exploration of sisters bond and how complicated that is. No one can break your heart like your sibling can.”

    “Humpday (also starring Duplass), the Sundance film about two straight guys who consider making a gay porn film together because they need the money.” Um….yeah, that is completely wrong. They consider doing the porn together for several different reasons, mostly because it is the one thing that scares them the most and neither wants to show weakness in facing the fear. Seriously, a really (surprisingly) good movie, and it is available on netflix streaming. I would be interested in the ‘Sisters’ movie based on the outstanding quality & ridiculous sexiness of Duplass. Just Sayin.
