Smart, mature romantic dramedy has adult situations, sex.
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.
- Families can talk about Your Sister's Sister drinking scene. Why are the characters drinking so much? Do they regret it? Are the consequences of their choices realistic?
- Are any of these characters role models? What do they do that's admirable, and what do they do that's not so admirable?
- Why would Jack agree to have sex with Hannah when he didn't love her? Parents, talk to your teens about your own values regarding sex and relationships.
