Storyline

Four separate sets of stories about Vancouver based siblings are told. Rory has just flown down to Los Angeles to spend time with Justin, his Hollywood movie star brother. Rory once had minor success in Hollywood as an actor, and encouraged Justin to give Hollywood a try. Once close, their relationship has changed by Justin's stardom, especially as Rory tries to find his place in the world. Jerry, a schizophrenic, is at a crossroads in his life. As such, his sister, Louise, feels that she needs to take care of him, especially as he was her protector when they were growing up. Louise would like to tell Jerry what she really thinks but doesn't know if she is brave enough to tell off a mentally ill person. Their relationship has an added complication in Ringo, Jerry's new ageist lawyer. Nikki doesn't see her older half sister Maggie much, only when Maggie calls whenever she is in trouble and needs help. Nikki, a struggling actress, would like a "Nikki" in her life, which she really needs... Written by Huggo

Charming set of stories shining a light on the intricacies of sibling relationships - loved every minute of it!
12 June 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching - in some ways it reminds me a lot of the British indie films I used to watch in my teens (Mike Leigh?). Not going to lie - the main reason I wanted to see this was because I wanted to see Cory play this character, but there's something truly charming about every character in this movie. Even if it takes a while to figure everyone out, there's still this undercurrent throughout the movie that no matter what crap life throws at you or between you and your family, and how much you might disagree and hate what they're doing or saying to you, it's still family, and there's really no person on earth that will ever really understand you or be willing to be there and support you through the biggest mistakes that you might be making. Essentially I got my own view of family and siblings echoed in these little stories. There are a lot of subtle and deep moments in them - each in their own way - and by the end of it I really cannot even name a favorite pair of siblings because they're all in their own way perfect in the way they are for each other. The actors all deserve an enormous amount of praise for their work in creating these characters and breathing such life and meaning into them, and Carl Bessai deserves all the praise for having the vision for this and delivering it to us in such a truly charming, often funny and so very poignant way.
