Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'Your Sister's Sister' [Movies]
Print this page

You know those awkward sexual experiences you’re always running into? Man, those are the worst, aren’t they? Just smile and nod – and let’s turn our attention to indie filmmaker Lynn Shelton. She apparently loves making movies about such things. Let’s take, for example, her 2009 film Humpday – not a hugely released film, but it did premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. In Humpday, two friends, Ben and Andrew, get drunk at a party with some alternative-type people and learn about an upcoming amateur porn competition. One thing leads to another and they decide that they can totally win this thing if they do something truly original: they will have sex with each other on camera, despite neither of them being gay – a pure, physical expression of heterosexual friendship. Oh, and Ben is married. It’s a fun movie.

This year, Ms. Shelton released her new film Your Sister’s Sister, which is currently playing at Village 8 Theater as part of the Louisville Exclusives Series. In this film, Mark Duplass stars as Jack, who is still distraught a year after the death of his brother. His best friend Iris (Emily Blunt) sends him to take a vacation at her father’s cabin – and there he finds Iris’ sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt). After a night of heavy drinking and commiserating, Hannah and Jack have sex – and then have to decide what to do about it when Iris shows up the next morning for vacation as well.

(Honestly, I watch the trailer and wonder what all the fuss is about. Sex does not equal commitment, people – you can move on with a mere “that was fun.”)

Your Sister’s Sister is scheduled to play at Village 8 until Thursday, July 19 (this is subject to change). Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
