YOUR SISTER'S SISTER is a drama about a man who borrows his best friend's remote island retreat in order to get over the death of his brother. On the island he encounters his friend's sister and spends a drunken night with her. The film was classified '15' for strong language and brief strong sex.

The film contains around 40 uses of strong language. This exceeds the terms of the BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12', which state 'The use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent', but is permissible at '15' where the Guidelines state 'There may be frequent use of strong language'.

The film also contains one brief scene of strong sex in which a woman appears to place a condom on a man underneath the bed covers. The man then thrusts on top of the woman, who reaches orgasm. Although there is no clear nudity, the sequence is insufficiently brief and discreet to be permissible at '12' and is more appropriately classified at '15' where the Guidelines state 'Sexual activity may be portrayed without strong detail'.

There are some moderate verbal sex references, including a discussion about a woman trimming her pubic hair and how a woman could get pregnant via sperm donations.
