A must-see for anyone interested in independent film-making
26 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Without a doubt, one of the best independent films this decade.

With a dialogue-rich script that reminds us why we enjoy cinema (no special effects here!), and helmed by one of the only director's in Hollywood capable of gathering a cast of this magnitude (check out his credits -- they're unbelievable!), THE SISTERS takes the audience on a journey into a family's inner workings - flaws, affairs, working dysfunctions and all.

Maria Bello gives a dynamic, deep and moving performance, which I heard she won several awards for on the festival circuit.

Eric McCormack comes out of no where with a raw intensity that changes the way you will see him.

Tony Goldwyn's masculine sexuality proves his leading man status will for sure keep him working for years to come.

But none of the above would have been possible without a script written as brilliantly as this one. Dialogue-rich, this script delivers an emotional journey with powerful scenes that keeps the story moving and the momentum growing - all culminating in a climax of intensity and drama that hits you with the realities of the illusion of family.

This is a staunchly independent film that anyone interested in superb cinema should definitely see.
