YOUR SISTER’S SISTER
2011, IFC Films, 90 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack (Mark Duplass) is an emotionally unstable slacker. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris (Emily Blunt) offers up her family cabin on an island in the Pacific Northwest so Jack can seek catharsis in solitude. Once there, however, he runs into Iris' sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship, who finds solace in the affable Jack’s unexpected presence, and the two bond over a long night of drinking. The blurry evening concludes with an awkward sexual incident made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning which sets into motion a twisted tale of ever-complicated relationships. A tale of grief, romance and sibling rivalry, YOUR SISTER'S SISTER further showcases writer-director Shelton's extraordinary ability to portray human stories with remarkable humor, sensitivity and warmth.


TOUCHY FEELY
2013, Magnolia Pictures, 89 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt) is a sought-after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine, running a failing dental practice with his assistant and daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, Abby develops an aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her unable to do her job but also severely affects her relationship with her boyfriend. As Abby navigates her way through an identity crisis, her brother's dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his “healing touch.” With Allison Janney.


WE GO WAY BACK
2006, 80 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

Aspiring actress Kate (Amber Hubert) has finally landed her first leading role at age 23, yet she’s conflicted about the creative and professional compromises she’s made to get there. As she reflects on her regrets, she is visited by an apparition of her idealistic 13-year-old self (Maggie Brown). With surreal, impressionistic imagery and a sure balance of comedy and tragedy, Lynn Shelton’s debut project wowed Slamdance audiences in 2006, winning Best Feature and Best Cinematography (Benjamin Kasulke) and introducing a distinctive new voice to the indie film world.
