INCREDIBLE JESSICA JAMES 3

In 2015, writer/director James C. Strouse made a wonderful impression with “People Places Things,” a sweet and smartly observed dramedy that superbly utilized star Jemaine Clement and brought Jessica Williams to greater awareness with the general public. Sensing something about the young actress and former “Daily Show” contributor, Strouse ups his dosage of Williams, gifting her a starring vehicle in “The Incredible Jessica James,” which makes full use of her many thespian talents. They’re a fine pair, with Strouse understanding what Williams can bring to the screen, while the actress offers her own vibrant personality, permitting the director to locate many emotional subtleties otherwise unachievable with another performer. “The Incredible Jessica James” is small in scale but big in spirit and laughs, and it would be a shame if Strouse and Williams stopped their wildly effective collaboration here.  Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
