Lynn Shelton’s newest to premiere at Toronto

Great news for a local filmmaker: Lynn Shelton’s latest film, Your Sister’s Sister will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. The film, set on an island off Seattle, stars Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt as a pair of siblings in what’s described as “an emotionally twisted tale of sisters, brothers and best friends.” Last time I spoke with the busy Shelton, last fall, she’d just finished shooting a Mad Men episode and planned to make her next film project an adaptation of Joshua Ferris’ novel Then We Came To the End. Your Sister’s Sister is an original screenplay and marks, I believe, Shelton’s first premiere at TIFF. Congratulations to her.
