'The Incredible Jessica James' has an Incredibly winning performance [Trailer]



This past January I wrote this when I saw "The Incredible Jessica James" at the Sundance Film Festival:

"You know, sometimes a performance just elevates a movie and in Jim Strouse's "The Incredible Jessica James" Jessica Williams lifts a standard romantic comedy into a real winner. Strouse's film is not a groundbreaker, but Williams sure is. Her personality is unique, lovable and totally unique, a star is born."

The movie is not new, surely nothing special, but Williams just owns every frame she's in. There's something about Jessica that makes me thing this isn't the last we'll see of her and that many more projects are coming for the 27-year-old actress in the near future. I don't think the same can be said of its director Jim Strouse, but he did hit the jackpot in casting here.

Official Synopsis:


"Jessica Williams (“The Daily Show”) stars as a young, aspiring playwright in New York City who is struggling to get over a recent breakup. She is forced to go on a date with the recently divorced Boone, played by Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) and the unlikely duo discover how to make it through the tough times in a social media obsessed post-relationship universe."
“The Incredible Jessica James” hits Netflix on July 28th.
