“As High as the Sky” a first-time, independent feature from writer-director Nikki Braendlin, is a beautifully nuanced film that explores the fragile bonds between sisters. Made on a SAG Indie Ultra-Low budget, the film packs an emotional and memorable punch with notable performances by Caroline Fogarty (“Big Love” and “Desperate Housewives”) and Bonnie McNeil (“Sympathy for Delicious”).
