Trailer: ‘Janie Jones’ starring Abigail Breslin, Alessandro Nivola, Elisabeth Shue, Brittany Snow

Janie Jones: A faded rock star is forced to take responsibility for the daughter he never knew he had in Janie Jones, a funny and touching road trip through the world of rock ‘n’ roll from writer-director David M. Rosenthal (Falling Up), inspired by his own experiences. Rocker Ethan Brand (Alessandro Nivola) and his band, the Ethan Brand Experience, are on the comeback trail when a former flame (Oscar(R) nominee Elisabeth Shue) drops a bomb in his lap–their 13-year-old daughter, Janie Jones (Abigail 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 with the band. With no inclination toward fatherhood, Ethan continues his hard-living ways, leaving Janie to fend for herself in the dive bars and sleazy motels along the way. courtesy of
