Soundtrack for Janie Jones Set For Release
In this music-based independent film, an on-the-road musician is forced to take responsibility for the daughter he never knew he had. Janie Jones is a heartwarming rock 'n' roll road drama from writer-director David M. Rosenthal (Falling Up), inspired by his own experiences. Rocker Ethan Brand (Nivola) and his band 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 (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 on tour with the band. With no feel for fatherhood, Ethan continues his hard-living ways, leaving Janie to fend for herself in the dive bars and sleazy motels along the way. As Ethan's self-destructive spiral threatens the group's future, his band members desert 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, where her surprising musical talents help guide him down the rocky road to redemption.
