Jinx Sister (Athina Tsoulis, 2008) wr. Athina Tsoulis, prod. Larry Justice, dp Rewa Harre; Sara Wiseman, Rachel Nash, Jarod Rawiri, William Wallace, Jenni Heka, Rawiri Paratene; 96 min.
Laura (Sara Wiseman) thinks she is a jinx. People who get close to her have a habit of dying, starting with her parents. She finds that running off to Los Angeles is not working. In fact, given her alcoholism, she is probably worse off. After ten years, she decides to return to Auckland and try to re-establish a relationship with her sister. Trying to deal with sibling rivalry, loss and a need for intimacy, she starts to find a way to a better future. Some very good acting, music, photography and production values, even though done with a low budget. Recommended.
