Synopsis

Filmworks presents the American independent drama “James White,” winner of an Audience Award at both the 2015 Sundance and AFI film festivals. The film tells the story of 20-something James White, a native New Yorker who is on the verge of a breakdown as he attempts to care for his dying mother and to see past his coddled upper middle-class life. As his mother deteriorates and the pressure on James builds, his volatile behavior puts him at risk of losing those who need him the most. This raw, fragile and intimate family story, the directorial debut from filmmaker Josh Mond, stars an ensemble cast that includes Christopher Abbott in a breakout performance as James, with Cynthia Nixon, Scott Mescudi and Ron Livingston.

Reviews

"Some movies are so good and true and tough-to-the-core they should just sneak up on you. James White is one of them." — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Familiar in its general trajectory, but unusually raw and ragged in its emotional architecture, Mond’s fraught portrait of a mother and son in crisis sports a pair of knockout performances by Cynthia Nixon and 'Girls' alumnus Christopher Abbott." — Scott Foundas, Variety
