American Mary in the New York Times

"Lots of siblings make movies. The brothers Coen (“No Country for Old Men”) are Oscar winners. Andy and Lana Wachowski (“Cloud Atlas”) are a prominent brother-sister team (although Lana was once Larry). But sister directors? And not just sisters, but identical twins?

Into this void step Jen and Sylvia Soska, the identical twins who wrote and directed the horror film “American Mary,” which opened in New York and other cities on Friday. The movie is about a medical student, Mary (Katharine Isabelle), who pays the bills by taking her skills into the world of underground surgery, where people modify their bodies — faces, breasts, limbs — in unusual ways as a means of self-expression. The film is the twins’ second feature; their first was the 2009 low-budget comic thriller with the self-explanatory title “Dead Hooker in a Trunk.”"
