Okay. I was really impressed when I saw the trailer of the Netflix movie The Incredible Jessica James. I was even more surprised after watching the whole movie by myself. This promising story of Jessica James turns out to be a real motivator, regardless your current life situation. Simply spend 1 hour and 25 minutes of your time and you will feel pretty refreshed afterwards.
The story of Jessica James (played by Jessica Williams) tells the situation of a young woman, who is sort of in this weird transitional phase in her life, trying to make it as a playwright in New York City while juggling several jobs and on top of it all, is trying to recover from a bad break up.
We know that, right?
Besides the topics I listed, there is so much more going on in this story. Jim Strouse & Jessica Williams both formed many little stories around the central character Jessica James, which is not only handling her own struggles, but more the topics of her generation. I am talking: feminism, role models, self-discovery, independence, and the influence of social media concerning our (love) life.
Not to forget to mention: the music. It is funky, upbeat music that spreads good vibes. Especially the music for the baby shower scene was hilarious. Thank you for that, music & sound department!
FINALLY. Here are for you, in my opinion, the best quotes from the movie The Incredible Jessica James, which aired on 28.th July 2017 on Netflix (oh oh spoiler-alert)…
“This is your one and only life. What do you want to tell people about it? “
“You shouldn’t need other people to validate or define you.”
“…I would literally rather have my period for a thousand years, non-stop, than continue this portion of the conversation.”
“Sort of in this weird transitional phase in my life where I don’t know what I’m gonna do next.”
“So, what? Life is just a series of failures in the first place..”
“It’s my raw feminine energy. It really fucks up the room. Hey, ladies! You’re all queens! Or however you choose to identify.”
J: I just really love theater. You know, I feel like I love it the way that most people love like sports or food…
I love everything about it. I love reading it. I love watching it even when it’s bad. I love teaching it. I especially love making it.
I just… love it all.
B: That’s great. So, whats the problem?
J:I don’t know if it loves me back and that scares the shit out of me.
