Lynn Shelton’s “twisted” new film Your Sister’s Sister is set to debut at the Toronto Film Festival. The film set on an island off Seattle was originally supposed to star Rachel Weisz as Emily Blunt’s troubled sister, but when the start date was pushed back, Weisz had to start filming Terrence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea, which is also premiering in Toronto. So Rosemary DeWitt (Rachel’s Getting Married) stepped in. Frequent Shelton collaborator Mark Duplass (Humpday) co-stars in this romantic triangle. “Basically in this little piece, everyone has got a secret,” Blunt tells EW. “Everyone trying to keep their secret. It’s a comedy in many ways, a comedy of errors, but also very poignant. It’s an exploration of sisters’ bond and how complicated that is. No one can break your heart like your sibling can.”
