JANE, The Movie
Fifteen-year-old JANE STEWART loves all things theater, obscure jokes, and her best friend. A traumatic event explodes her world, and a journey begins…one that takes her far from home, and back again. Jane holds fiercely to an inner thread – where poetry, music and real friends can save her life.
Leonard Cohen Saved My Life
(feature screenplay) explores how the inner life of a 15-year-old girl becomes that thread – how music and poetry anchor her in the face of sexual violence, family upheaval, and change she cannot control: sexual and political revolution in America.
Leonard Cohen Saved My Life carries the story of JANE backwards in time, and explores the life of a fifteen-year old girl in 1969 California, during a time when sexual assault was almost never talked about, and most girls took it on as their own fault, issue, and silence.
