Storyline

A reluctant reunion of two estranged sisters. One is on the verge of marriage; the other is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Both struggle with truths they're hiding from each other - and from themselves. Jenny has rejected her tumultuous family and cut off communication, seeking a more ordered life far from her roots in the Bronx. And she's almost ready to commit to her longtime fiancé when her sister Lucy - the personification of all that Jenny has been trying to flee - surprises her at a critical time. Lucy and Jenny's combustible reunion brings both of them to unforeseen places, shattering and reconstructing the worlds they have both carefully constructed. Written by Anonymous

Buyer Beware of Union Square
7 August 2013 | by TheCinamistSee all my reviews

Union Square, a snapshot of the dysfunctional relationship between two New York City sisters, starring Mira Sorvino and Tammy Blanchard, provides several comedic moments but not enough to warrant a recommendation.

The primary redeeming factor of this film is the length: mercifully a short 80 minutes... Unfortunately, I suspect its short length is due to severe editing in an unsuccessful effort to salvage the piece. The end result has the feel of a story better suited to the stage rather than the screen. The acting and NYC accents are heavy handed and grating, and the story line is disjointed – simply not worth watching.
