Inspired by true experiences of grief, girlhood, and growing up, Sophie Jones provides a stirring portrait of a 16-year old trying to figure out life. “Stunned by the untimely death of her mother and struggling with the myriad challenges of teendom, Sophie tries everything she can to feel something again, while holding herself together, in this sensitive, acutely realized, and utterly relatable coming-of-age story.” Starring Jessica Barr as Sophie, with Skyler Verity, Claire Manning, Charlie Jackson, and Dave Roberts. This looks like a worthwhile indie gem.
