WME has signed writer/directors Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, whose My Little Sister is Switzerland’s entry to the Oscar’s International Feature Film category this year. Both women are also accomplished actresses who have previous directing credits that include 2010’s multi-award-winning The Little Bedroom, their debut that starred Michel Bouquet and which was also that year’s Academy Award submission.
My Little Sister stars Nina Hoss and premiered in competition at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year. It’s the story of Berlin-born twins Lisa (Hoss) and Sven (Lars Eidinger) who have a lifelong shared passion for theater. He’s a famous actor, while she has abandoned her writing to live with her husband and children in Switzerland. But when Sven falls gravely ill, Lisa begins to dramatically re-evaluate her life.
