A hit at TIFF 2016, Stella Meghie’s whip-smart comedy focuses on twentysomething writer Jean (Taylour Paige), who seeks solace from a failed relationship and a vista of un-enticing career prospects by hanging out with her mother, grandmother, and two aunts in their Brooklyn apartment. The death of the clan’s estranged patriarch, and the ensuing chaos as the women attempt to plan his funeral, compels the assorted Joneses to confront their complex family history, end their constant bickering and judging, and do their best to figure themselves out and understand one another.
