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.
