    The indie road movie Janie Jones is billed as "inspired by the true story" of its writer-director, David M. Rosenthal. Impossible. No one's life is this boring.

    Starts off absorbing, band interactions are interesting. But second half is a bore and utterly predictable. Should have let Breslin solo, rather than spend so much time on Nivola's dreary narcissistic monotones. Shue's role could have been developed more, especially her relationship to her daughter. Instead, the ending just doesn't ring true. Full Review »
