What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Your Sister's Sister is an independently produced romantic dramedy with smart characters, rich situations, and a lot of mature material, starting with sexual situations. A sex scene between a straight main and a lesbian woman is shown from beginning to end; there's no graphic nudity, but the scene has a big impact on the rest of the story, and other sex talk and sexual situations follow. Language is also strong, with liberal use of "f--k" and "s--t" throughout. A scene of excessive drinking contributes to the plot, and there's additional social drinking. Characters argue, but otherwise violence isn't an issue. This is a grown-up movie, but mature teens may enjoy it.
