Sisterhood is a powerful concept and the bond between sisters is magical, complicated, inspirational, annoying, heartwarming, exasperating and everything else on the emotional spectrum. All of that gets portrayed in the movies, with plenty of sibling rivalry, drama, romance and comedy all thrown in. If you’re in the mood for some sisterly love, share a film night with your sister with these movies about siblings.
1. Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
This was my first introduction to the movies of Woody Allen. It certainly paved the way for me to learn that if there’s one thing Allen loves to portray in his movies, it’s complicated relationships and tangled human emotions. Here we meet Hannah, whose husband falls in love with her sister Lee, while her hypochondriac ex-husband rekindles his relationship with her sister Holly. Families, heh? The movie won three Oscars – Dianne Wiest (Supporting actress), Michael Caine (Supporting Actor) and Woody Allen (Original Screenplay).
