Film, well-received in Toronto, scheduled for summer release
The Unified Pictures-produced film will be released theatrically in several U.S. cities and on video-on-demand and other platforms. The film, which was well received at the Toronto International Film Festival, is described as a rock ‘n’ roll road trip about a father and daughter bonding through music. Its name comes from a Clash song.
“I didn’t meet my daughter until she was eleven years old and it was perhaps the most profound moment in my life," he said in a statement. "'Janie Jones' captures that emotion. So, knowing Tribeca Film is treating the release of the film with such care is a great comfort to me — not to mention very exciting.”
Said Geoffrey Gilmore, chief creative officer of Tribeca Enterprises: “Janie Jones is especially notable as a showcase for the extraordinary talents of Alessandro and Abigail, whose on-screen musical performances are nothing short of revelatory.”
