Watch Janie Jones - Alternative Versions.
Janie Jones (Abigail Breslin), a 13 year-old girl is with her mother
and they are off to meet her father. Except her mother (Elisabeth Shue)
is a whore-like drug- addicted loser who's abandoning her daughter. And
her father (Alessandro Nivola) is a fading rock-and-roll star who has
no idea he has a daughter, let alone any intention of being a father to
one. "Janie Jones" the film and each of the characters pick all the
It's a fairly subtle drama about a young girl who doesn't want to be
left on her own but knows how to take care of herself; and a father who
doesn't seem to have the first clue about how to take care of himself,
but with the arrival of Janie, he might try for her sake. Similar
movies have been done before, but this one is a bit more subtle in
their actions even if the plot points are the same. I whole-heartedly
enjoyed each of the choices they made to the move the film along.
Ethan, the father, is a rock singer desperate to cling on to the
notoriety that comes with being a band leader. As you can guess, his
career isn't going so well. One of the excellent elements of the film
was choosing softer, folk songs when he's actually playing music for
us, or for his daughter. And, even better, it really is Nivola playing
the guitar. A talented musician, he was in bands throughout high school
More excellent choices were made in the casting and characterizations.
Brittany Snow has managed to stay just in the shadows of the Hollywood
spotlight her whole career despite her cute, blonde looks. I'm assuming
that has something do with the fact that even though she is a cute
blonde, either her characters have had a dark side or the films have
had a dark side. I've always admired that about her. This marks the
first time she's not playing a teenager. And her character, named Iris,
who appears to be a whore-like drug-addicted loser on the arm of Ethan,
isn't exactly as she appears to be. Frank Whaley, playing Ethan's
band-mate, steals the few scenes he's in by adding some touching comedy
to the drama.
Nivola and Breslin are the stars and despite their age and background
differences, they never went over-the-top around each other. They both
played their characters with the subtlety required. The scenes of just
the two of them were cute but never showy; they held our hearts the
whole way. I've always loved Nivola and have appreciated everything he
has done. Breslin has made the right choice by returning to her indie
roots, showing how she has matured and keeping the comedy in check.
"Janie Jones" has flown under the radar, I'm assuming because it has
chosen quieter tones, but they are the right ones.
