In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with actress Abigail Breslin in the conclusion of our five part series of celebrity chats from the Provincetown International Film Festival. Abigail has come a long way since her Oscar nominated role as LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE. In the title role of JANIE JONES, Breslin plays opposite one of our favorite actors, Alessandro Nivola. Based on a true story this moving film was written and directed by David M. Rosenthal. JANIE JONES is about Ethan (Nivola), a struggling musician content with his on-the-road rock-and-roll lifestyle and his much younger girlfriend Iris (Brittany Snow). He has his life turned upside down with the arrival of a former groupie Mary Ann Jones (Elisabeth Shue) who informs him that he has a daughter. Mary Ann is headed for rehab leaving him with the responsibility of raising Janie (Breslin), a shy but talented aspiring musician herself. The two embark on a road trip of music, discovery and father-daughter bonding. We talked to Breslin about working with such a stellar cast, her rock band CABB that she formed with her friend Cassidy Reif and more.
LGBTQ teens are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. We continue to have numerous teens taking their own lives after facing bullying incidents. Being a teen herself we asked what advise she would have for these kids. Abigail stated, “You know I think that in terms of bullying I don’t think anyone should ever be picked on for anything. You know, just treat everyone the same, I think that is so important. I don’t get why anyone should ever be bullied, you know just treat everyone the same is really important.”
Tribeca Film released JANIE JONES October 28th theatrically and on Comcast On Demand.
