It’s been a year since his brother died and Jack (Mark Duplass) is not handling it well. After Jack’s drunken, self-loathing outburst at the memorial service, his best friend Iris (Emily Blunt) sends him to her isolated family cabin in Puget Sound to get his head together. Jack finds Iris’s sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) is already there, nursing her own broken heart after ending a seven-year relationship.

After a hostile and awkward first meeting, the two cautiously bond over a bottle of Tequila. They form a liquid alliance that leads to a more intimate, if somewhat desperate union. Early the next morning, Iris arrives unannounced and brings a new layer of complications, revelations and family baggage. This film offers nuanced performance, believable characters and dialogue that weaves a perfect blend of ironic humor and raw emotion as this likeable trio sort out their “issues.” [adult content, language]
