Thicker Than Water is a film about sisters. It is about blame. Why we blame others, or ourselves, for what is out of our control. It’s about a complicated grief, how to grow within it, how to outgrow it, if either option is a possibility. It’s about how siblings grow in opposition. It’s about places, old and new, and how strange it is when the places we know best become unfamiliar. It’s about memory, what we can and can’t remember and the memories we choose to forget. It is about how an empty space makes room for relationship, and how two people, through the act of packing up a house that was once their home, unpack the story of their childhood. It is a film which hints at something much bigger than what is shown, perhaps never resolving or including catharsis, but almost certainly suggests a clearer future ahead. Thicker Than Water is about strength: strength in talking, strength in trusting and strength in feeling.
