About Janie Jones:
Rocker Ethan Brand (Alessandro Nivola) and his band are on the comeback trail when a former flame (Academy Award® nominee Elisabeth Shue) drops a bomb in his lap: their 13-year-old daughter, Janie Jones (Academy Award® nominee Abigail Breslin). Ethan refuses to believe Janie is his kid, but when her mom suddenly leaves for rehab, she has no place to go but on the road with the band.
With no feel for fatherhood, Ethan continues his hard-living ways, giving Janie a crash course of the not-so-glamorous life on the road. As Ethan's self-destructive spiral threatens the groups future, his band members desert him one by one, until he and Janie are left alone. Desperate to finish the tour and revive his career, Ethan stays on the road as a solo act with Janie in tow, where her surprising musical talents help guide him down the rocky road to redemption. Nivola and Breslin, who both sing and perform in the film, naturally embrace their musical characters while developing Ethan and Janie's relationship. Writer/director David M. Rosenthal, who was inspired by his own experiences, blends the musical setting with road trip movie elements that add subtle layers to the dynamic of his two main characters.
Janie Jones will open in a limited theatrical release beginning October 28th and will also be available On Demand, iTunes, and Amazon Watch Instantly.
