CGiii Comment

Jessica Chastain delivers a fine performance.

The production values are above par.

The direction is competent.

However, the story is a ridiculous hike through implausibility - the girl, a southern teenage bride, manages to sleep with every millionaire in America after having a lesbian affair with a prison guard who helps her escape...yes, it is utterly ridiculous.


The(ir) Blurb...

A teenage orphan spends ten years traveling cross-country experiencing life, love and heartbreak. Based on E.L. Doctorow's story, "Jolene: A Life."
