WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Allow yourself to be charmed by The Other Sister. It stars Juliette Lewis as Carla, a very special girl who is ready to begin her life as a young adult. But when her worried mother (Keaton) discovers that Carla has found her first romance, she becomes especially over protective and is very reluctant to allow Carla to spend time with Daniel (Ribisi), her new love. Tom Skerritt is terrific as Carla’s more easy-going dad.
