Authentic Coming-of-Age Drama “SOPHIE JONES” From Exec. Producer Nicole Holofcener

Inspired by true experiences of grief, girlhood, and growing up, Jessie Barr’s Sophie Jones provides a stirring portrait of a sixteen-year-old. Stunned by the untimely death of her mother and struggling with the myriad challenges of teendom, Sophie (played with striking immediacy by the director’s cousin Jessica Barr) tries everything she can to feel something again, while holding herself together, in this sensitive, acutely realized, and utterly relatable coming-of-age story.

 

“A poignant exploration of this arduous age, rooted in staggering authenticity.”
– Courtney Howard, Variety
“Barr nails the flickering, shifting, visceral emotions of adolescence.”
– Roxana Hadadi, Roger Ebert
“A refreshing, deeply human meditation on girlhood, sex, and grief.
Sophie Jones is indie coming-of-age at its best.”
– Lena Wilson, The Playlist
