Synopsis: A faded rock star is forced to take responsibility for the daughter he never knew he had in JANIE JONES, a funny and touching road trip through the world of rock ‘n’ roll from writer-director David M. Rosenthal (FALLING UP), inspired by his own experiences.
Rocker Ethan Brand (Alessandro Nivola) and his band, the Ethan Brand Experience, are on the comeback trail when a former flame (Oscar® nominee Elisabeth Shue) drops a bomb in his lap—their 13- year-old daughter, Janie Jones (Abigail Breslin). Ethan refuses to believe Janie is his kid, but when her mom suddenly leaves for rehab, the child has no place to go but with the band.
With no inclination toward fatherhood, Ethan continues his hard-living ways, leaving Janie to fend for herself in the dive bars and sleazy motels along the way. As his drug- and booze-fueled antics take their toll on and off stage, the band deserts 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. As Ethan’s self-destructive spiral threatens to derail his comeback, Janie uses her own surprising musical talents to help guide him down the rocky road to redemption.
will be released to theaters in New York and Los Angeles on October 28, 2011 and will be available on VOD (Video on Demand) October 27th, 2011. You can find all our coverage of Janie Jones here.
