Tuesday releases

3.5 stars "Your Sister's Sister" (R): The comedy is evidence of Shelton's growing mastery of storytelling, says Seattle Times movie critic Moira Macdonald. Filmed in the San Juan Islands, it brings together Jack (Mark Duplass), still grieving for his brother a year after his death; Iris (Emily Blunt), Jack's best friend; and Iris' sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) — all three altered by the events of one night at a family vacation home.

3.5 stars "Arthur Christmas" (PG): Aardman, the studio behind "Wallace and Gromit," delivers an animated tale about Santa's youngest son (voiced by James McAvoy), who discovers one little girl didn't receive her present.

"360" (R): Characters struggle with fidelity in Fernando Meirelles' multinarrative drama starring Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law and Ben Foster. In several languages, with English subtitles. No star rating provided.

Coming Friday

3 stars "The Amazing Spider-Man" (PG-13): Andrew Garfield swoops through the air as the new comic-book hero, Peter Parker.
