THE SUNDANCE KID

Queering Sundance: What’s Gay At This Year’s Sundance Film Festival?

 

Your Sister’s Sister

A year after his brother Tom’s death, Jack (Mark Duplass) is still a mess. When Jack makes a scene at the memorial, his late brother’s ex-girlfriend Iris (Emily Blunt) offers her family cabin for him to find solace—and maybe some closure. Once there, however, he runs into Iris’ sister, Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship. Hannah finds comfort in affable Jack’s unexpected presence and the two bond over a long night of drinking and an awkward sexual encounter.  Worry not—this is ain’t your typical lesbian-goes-straight rom-com.
