Sisters & Brothers (2011)

The final film in Carl Bessai’s Family X trilogy — following 2008’s Mothers & Daughters and 2010’s Fathers & Sons — tells thoughtful emotional truths touching on themes of jealousy, despair, affection and forgiveness. But this is a comedy, and it mines real relationships for honest laughs as four sets of siblings reunite, none of whom have been close in some time.

With a stellar cast (all of which collaborated on the film's script) including the late Cory Monteith, Gabrielle Miller and Amanda Crew, this lovably dysfunctional story presents a funny, off-kilter vision of familial connections and their intricacies.
