"...A beautifully acted love story....THE OTHER SISTER has a core of integrity..."

"...Lewis shines; she hasn't been this good since 1991's CAPE FEAR..."
Juliette Lewis and Giovanni Ribisi perform admirably as developmentally different young adults who meet and fall in love. As the friends and family of the challenged, the supporting cast shows plenty of the expected love, support, and well-meaning anxiety, but also some refreshingly realistic impatience, frustration, and embarrassment.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
The Other Sister
This funny and uplifting romantic comedy features outstanding performances from Juliette Lewis (ENOUGH), Diane Keaton (HANGING UP, THE FIRST WIVES CLUB), and Tom Skerritt (CONTACT) in a great star-packed cast! Even though Carla (Lewis) has grown into a very capable young woman, her nervous mother (Keaton) still has a major meltdown when Carla announces she's in love for the first time! So as Carla and her new boyfriend (Giovanni Ribisi, GONE IN 60 SECONDS, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN) set out to experience all of life's great adventures, they're also out to prove that Carla has earned her independence! The latest big-screen favorite from Garry Marshall, the acclaimed director of PRETTY WOMAN and RUNAWAY BRIDE -- you're sure to cheer this feel-good treat!
