Takes its cues from both Woody Allen's self-indulgent worlds and the literary panache of Zadie Smith, but remains original in its darkly funny perspective ...
Introducing both a fresh new voice and a fresh new face to independent filmmaking, Jean of the Joneses is a crisply urbane comedy from first-time writer-director Stella Meghie, boasting a sparkling lead performance by Taylour Paige.
Meghie's endearingly acerbic debut feature is a work of modest ambition and commercial outlook, but that modesty proves intrinsic to its appeal ...
The greatest treat of Jean of the Joneses is the immigrant heritage of the films plays right on the surface.
Considering that it's based in such a particular milieu, it's disappointing that so much of Jean of the Joneses feels commonplace, from dialogue that consists mostly of sitcom-ready quips to staid mise en scène that stagnates Paige's game performance.
Jean of the Joneses is a fine debut.
Highly visually controlled, snappily edited, and beautifully acted, Jean of the Joneses is a clever New York comedy about the Caribbean diaspora.
While its themes don't feel properly developed, breakout title actor Taylour Paige and her fictional family (including Sherri Shepherd and Gloria Reuben) make the Joneses worth keeping up with.
