Dearest Sister celebrated its World Premiere at the Fantastic Fest in Austin yesterday, September 25th. The first reviews have hit the web. And they’re positive!
Building on a persuasive original script by Christopher Larsen, director Mattie Do keeps the temperature rising with a greater variety of emotions and motivations than in Chantaly, resulting in a discomfiting movie that has an even greater, deeply moving impact.

The pacing is pensive, requiring viewers to patiently absorb what the movie offers. It’s a slow burn, and I found that the creepy moments felt REALLY creepy after the gentle rhythm of the movie throughout. The word practical also comes to mind when I think about this film. It delivers a good story without bells and whistles. It feels real. If you like over-the-top drama in your thrillers, this is not the film for you. If you love a tale well told with an uber-satisfying ending, make sure you catch this foreign indie from Laos. Source – Ain’t it Cool News, Diva Del Mar
