"Diane Flacks and Richard Greenblatt star in the stage play SIBS, the story of a brother and sister who reflect on their lives after their father dies. Now missing both parents, the two come to terms with their childhood and adolescent years. While remaining faithful to the theatrical spirit and emotional register of the original, this film version, directed with elan by Laurie Lynd, expands the play's visual reach and serves as a how-to example of stage-to-screen adaptations. Flacks and Greenblatt belong to that rare breed of performers: drop-dead funny comedians who are equally at home in drama's darker moments. " ~ Globe and Mail.
