“..writer/director David A. Rosenthal lets the story play out with genuine sweetness, both in the drama and the songs..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
“..too contrived for these immensely convincing, human, damaged characters..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..there are no surprises in David M. Rosenthal's film..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]

“..packaging is unobtrusively pro..”

“.."Janie Jones" is billed as "inspired by the true story" of its writer-director, David M. Rosenthal. Impossible. No one's life is this boring..”
