"Janie Jones" is pie to anyone who likes rock stories like me. It's also more gritty than most which I appreciated. There are also a lot of just playing the acoustic guitar scenes.
This one I stumbled upon on Netflix streaming. Thank you Netflix! I downloaded the soundtrack right away. Gemma Hayes has a really great song on it, for example. Others are written by Eef Barzelay.
Alessandro Nivola's character, Ethan Brand, is left with a young daughter, Janie, played by Abigail Breslin at one of his gigs by her mother, played by Elizabeth Shue.
My favorite scene is the laundry mat scene below:
Ethan is teaching Janie a really great guitar song while the two of
them sit on washing machines and the lighting is grey blue green/
fluorescent. I guess I like it so much because it feels candid. And
it's a really good song where half way through, the movie cuts to them
playing it live. Both actors can really sing and play and do.
liked how there were no O.D.'s in this movie. I liked how the band
totally freaks out on him and leaves--that was well done. I like how
the two main characters help each other out without being too over the
