Storyline

A reluctant reunion of two estranged sisters. One is on the verge of marriage; the other is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Both struggle with truths they're hiding from each other - and from themselves. Jenny has rejected her tumultuous family and cut off communication, seeking a more ordered life far from her roots in the Bronx. And she's almost ready to commit to her longtime fiancé when her sister Lucy - the personification of all that Jenny has been trying to flee - surprises her at a critical time. Lucy and Jenny's combustible reunion brings both of them to unforeseen places, shattering and reconstructing the worlds they have both carefully constructed. Written by Anonymous

Character study of grown siblings
26 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is better than most reviewers give it credit for. I caught it on cable and the synopsis given there was incorrect (about heroine addicts??). As the story unfolds, you see how two sisters have crafted their individual adulthoods according to different patterns -- and how their shared histories will forever keep them connected, whether they like it or not. While the examination of their respective lives and psyche could have shown more depth at times, the slow unraveling and reveal of their childhood seemed very accurate. Some of the peripheral characters (i.e. husband) could have benefited from more dimension, but the story wasn't really about him. This is a subtle film, about complicated relationships -- it doesn't explode, race, or create loud noises, its more tender.
