A brother and sister with much emotional baggage try to reconnect.

When a failed suicide attempt lands aspiring actor Milo (Bill Hader) in the hospital, his long-estranged twin sister, dental hygienist Maggie (Kristen Wiig), invites him to recuperate at her house. Milo finds he's still obsessed with a former boyfriend who is sending mixed signals. Meanwhile, the depressive Maggie is prone to cheating on her cheerfully attentive husband (Luke Wilson). Saturday Night Live alumni Hader and Wiig shine in this funny, bold and bittersweet comedy-drama. [12A]
