About the Film
The winner of the Showtime Tony Cox Feature Screenplay Competition at NFF 2012, Jean of the Joneses revolves around a matriarchal Jamaican-American family, viewed through the acerbic perspective of aspiring novelist Jean (Taylour Paige). After a tentative separation from her boyfriend leaves her temporarily homeless, Jean seeks help from her family, led by mom Maureen (Sherri Shepherd, 30 Rock), grandmother Daphne (Michelle Hurst, Orange Is the New Black), and aunts Janet (Gloria Reuben, ER) and Anne (Erica Ash). Evidencing their own issues with men, this feisty bunch soon are forced to reckon with long-buried family secrets in this fresh comedy.
