“I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it. When nothing is too messed up that can’t be fixed by a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl does, it’s just not the truth.”

Directed by Josh Boone (Stuck in Love), The Fault in Our Stars is based on John Green’s 2012 young adult best-seller about two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. Adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now, (500) Days of Summer), the film stars Shailene Woodley and her Divergent co-star, Ansel Elgort.

At her mother’s behest, 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster (Woodley) attends a support group held in a church basement, referred to as “The Literal Heart of Jesus” by their leader Patrick (Mike Birbiglia). Hazel is diagnosed with stage 4 thyroid cancer, which has spread to her lungs. As a result, Hazel drags a portable oxygen tank behind her everywhere she goes.

Your Sister’s Sister
Directed by Lynn Shelton
Written by Lynn Shelton
Starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt, Mark Duplass, Mike Birbiglia
IFC Films
Rated R | 90 Minutes
Release Date: June 29, 2012

In her new film, Your Sister’s Sister, Sundance award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships with off-the-cuff humor and intimate authenticity.

Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, The League) stars as Jack who, a year after his brother’s death, is still emotionally struggling and lost in life. He takes up an offer from his friend (and dead brother’s ex-girlfriend) Iris (Emily Blunt) to stay at her father’s isolated cabin to seek comfort and catharsis in solitude.

Upon arriving at the cabin, Jack meets Iris’ sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), who is reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship. The two bond over a long night of drinking and swapping stories, a sequence entirely improvised by Duplass and DeWitt. As it usually does, the drinking leads to spontaneous, casual sex – which triggers a complicated, really awkward love triangle when Iris arrives for a surprise visit.
