>PEACE, LOVE & MISUNDERSTANDING

It’s fun to see Jane Fonda parodying herself as aged hippie Grace—just don’t expect more. As pleasant as Peace is, it’s also formulaic, with Grace’s estranged daughter Diane (Catherine Keener) bringing the grandkids for a visit whens her marriage collapses. We’ll get pot and protests but no good answers as to why mom and daughter fell out.

YOUR SISTER’S SISTER

Iris (Emily Blunt), half sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) and friend Jack (Mark Duplass) accidentally meet at the sisters’ cabin, where Jack and lesbian Hannah drunkenly hook up. The result is a funny, honest film about love—platonic, sisterly and otherwise. Sister is talky and claustrophobic, but the closeness lets the performances stand out.
