I agree with the other reviewers who have noted that this is a fabulous film filled with five strong female characters - the wildly different four sisters (named after cities) who come together after their mother's death. The writing is witty, suspenseful, and with deep character insight... there's not a cliché to be found in this script by Colette Freedman.It is by turns hilarious, touching, surprising, and gasp inducing. The four sisters are acted brilliantly, with Jess Weixler a standout as the writer who tanked after a single best seller, and went home to live with mom. It is she who shows (initially) the most courage, but where this brings the others will surprise you. .. Stana Katic is stunning as the ice princess eldest sister on track to be a judge, with Michelle Trachtenberg on point as a somewhat prissy, uptight woman who harbors her own secrets, and the effervescent Troian Bellisario as the youngest is simply a delight. Flashbacks show both the mom and three of the sisters much younger, and so the cast is almost entirely female (with small but well conceived roles featuring the always excellent Edward Molina and handsome Tom Everett Scott) making this a female dominated film in precisely the way that nearly all Hollywood films are male dominated. And guess what... It's fabulous. Agree with the other reviewer, more of these please.
