Sundance Film Festival 2016 Spotlight: Foxy Femme Janie Brookshire


With Sundance still in the throes of introducing to the world compelling stories, let us give attention to the gorgeous Janie Brookshire who is quite the kissable cutie in the eyes of audiences. She’s starring alongside Sienna Miller in “So Good To See You” which has been touted as one of 5 Must-Watch Short Films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Sienna plays a woman who privacy admits her true feelings about her dinner companions all the whilst having her privacy exposed when her rants are inadvertently left as a voicemail on her host’s cell. This has recipe for disaster written over and affirms that in life we can’t always be in control. I have a feeling that the characters essayed by Sienna and Janie are headed for a very tense conclusion.

Janie does however has the beguiling features of a genuine sweetheart as we will see in “So Good TO See You” setting her on the path to be one of the likeable new faces in 2016. She’s also appeared on Halley Feiffer’s movie “He’s Way More Famous Than You” whom many will know regularly features on this blog. Adding on to her also appearances on TV shows such as “The Good Wife” and “Forever” ensure Janie’s enchanting ubiquity is on multiple mediums. Last year, she showcased her impressive stage presence on a remarkably intriguing level in the play Angel Street (Gaslight) as Bella, the naive Victorian wife who is pushed to the brink by her abusive husband. All signs point to Janie’s burgeoning career as an entertainer and we’re ready to embrace her with open arms.

Foxy Femme: Andrea Syglowski

With her kissable lips, everyone will soon be having an avidity for Andrea Syglowski who dazzles up the small screen this week. She’s appearing in “The Good Wife” as Stacy Groom, the plaintiff who is embroiled in a case of wrongful abortion in the episode ‘Restraint’. Her character Stacy gets grilled by the fearsome Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) who is dismissive of her but eventually succumbs to the ideals of free speech and gets Stacy to the stand during the controversial trial. Andrea shines in the skin of this woman who in spite of a barrage of damning questions has the presence of mind to be unshakeable and belies her own ulterior motives. This is a weighty role for Andrea so make sure you stick to the end as she is set to impress audiences in dramatic fashion.

In fact many would have seen her earlier in the year in the third season of “Elementary” playing Sarah Jacoby whose husband’s DNA is found under the fingernails of a dead woman but believes her husband is innocent of the murder. This ever enchanting Andrea is also active on the theatre scene having been a vision of seduction in the play “Venus in Fur” back in 2014. As the struggling actress Vanda, she’s a potent enticer, from the gentle swaying of her hips be it clad or barely-clad in her black lingerie to the erotic use of language, Andrea tantalizes the senses. I for one can’t wait to see her sink her teeth into a future role as a femme fatale and Andrea could soon be an alluring starlet in our midst.
