Léa Seydoux (BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR, FAREWELL MY QUEEN) delivers on her promise as France's next breakthrough star with her astonishing performance in SISTER, Ursula Meier's internationally-heralded and extraordinarily moving new drama about two siblings searching for a place in the world. 12-year-old Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein) lives with his restless older sister Louise (Seydoux) at the base of the Swiss Alps. Every day he takes the cable car to the ski resorts above to pilfer from rich tourists, while Louise drifts through a series of part-time jobs and promiscuity, sometimes disappearing for days on end. In her absence, Simon forges a strong bond with a wealthy tourist (Gillian Anderson), and his fragile relationship with his sister fractures into dangerous new territory..
★★★★ "Heartrending and beautifully directed. Klein's astounding performance is filled with equal parts guile and vulnerability. Seydoux proves herself a spellbinding performer to watch. The pair artfully weave the ties that bind, crafting something that is both fragile and tenuously hopeful."Alice Tynan, ABC LIMELIGHT MAGAZINE
★★★★ "Highly impressive. An arresting drama."Craig Mathieson, THE SUNDAY AGE
18/20 "Poignant, emotional and unforgettable."Annette Basile, FILMINK
