Robert, 20s, writer and filmmaker in San Francisco. Currently finishing up school and writing my first novel.
Carla Tate (Juliette Lewis) has an independent streak a mile wide. Trouble is, she’s mentally challenged, and her rich, overprotective parents (Diane Keaton and Tom Skerritt) have misgivings about her getting her own apartment and pursuing a relationship with another mentally challenged person (Giovanni Ribisi). An emotional tour de force for full-retard Lewis, The Other Sister is ultimately a “triumphant” story of perseverance in the face of mentally challenged odds. 1999
