Join Fresno Filmworks this Friday night, January 8th, for “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. Show times are 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. The film is rated R. Run time is 86 minutes.
FROM THE CRITICS
Scott Foundas of Variety says “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.”
