Sisters + Dinner
Two adult sisters throw one last bash in their childhood home
Fancy a different cinema experience? Then why not get down to Roxy's Bar And Screen and catch great new films, served up with a side of modern European food. With an emphasis on healthy ingredients from the nearby food market – think homemade burgers and perfectly cooked steaks – it's a step up from your everyday Multiplex outing. When their parents place the family home on the market, siblings Maura (Amy Poehler) and Kate (Tina Fey) learn that they have one weekend to clean out their old bedroom. Angry the house is being sold, the sisters make plans to have a party, and recapture their glory days with their former classmates. When things start to get out of hand though, they realise there may not be a house left to sell when the dust settles.
