CRITIC REVIEWS

The Sister is Nadler’s journey to self-assurance, in which she paints an intricate portrait of longing and reflection, blurring its sullen edges with shades of hope and prosperity.

As heart-stopping as The Sister is, though, it feels more like an appendix to her body of work than a fresh, essential sequel.

With its relatively short running time, it makes for a fine introduction to Nadler's work, the sparse instrumentation highlighting her beautiful voice.

Consequence of Sound

In the end, it’s a bit disappointing to see her regress from the bold moves she made on 2011's Marissa Nadler, but it seems to be the trade-off we’ve made for The Sister‘s lyrical clarity.

Under The Radar

The rest of us will ultimately find repeat listens to The Sister as unsatisfying as a Truffaut film without subtitles
