Our experiences always mark us. They make us grow and are part of who we are today. So why not use that experience for others to learn from it? That’s just what Jessie Barr did with Sophie Jones. Are you interested? Here’s the synopsis.
Here we go!
We know that the premise of the movie is quite compelling. So, here’s the synopsis.
Inspired by true experiences of grief, girlhood, and growing up, Jessie Barr’s Sophie Jones provides a stirring portrait of a sixteen year old. Stunned by the untimely death of her mother and struggling with the myriad challenges of teendom, Sophie (played with striking immediacy by the director’s cousin Jessica Barr) tries everything she can to feel something again, while holding herself together, in this sensitive, acutely realized, and utterly relatable coming-of-age story.
It seems incredible, does it? We have all been 16 and at that age … you think you can eat the world. You still don’t realize that life is precisely about fighting so that the world cannot eat you. Especially when you know the loss of someone as important as a mother too soon. At that point, you have to find yourself, your own way, even if you feel alone.
We can only imagine how emotional this movie will get us because just reading the synopsis…already does.
