R | | Drama
A teenage orphan spends ten years traveling cross-country experiencing life, love and heartbreak. Based on E.L. Doctorow's story, "Jolene: A Life."
Jessica Chastain's feature film debut.
When Jolene is narrating about the trial of Uncle Phil she says that she needed to prove that she was 16 and therefore he was guilty of "statutory rape"; This part of the film takes place in South Carolina where the age of consent is 16 therefore it would not be statutory rape, he could be found guilty of adultery and that would have been grounds for divorce from his wife though.
In on-screen credits, Don Mosley is listed twice as Chief Lighting Technician.
