Iris, a commitment phobic twenty-something sends her friend Jack to her family’s remote island cabin to help him get over a family death. However, when he arrives, Hannah – Iris’ sister – is in residence already (recovering from a messy break-up) and a drunken encounter between the two sets off a chain reaction of hilarity and heart-ache.
This warm-hearted indie comedy is impeccably acted and another sharply scripted triumph from the director of Humpday. Starring Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt.
