| Queen Jolene
I saw Jolene at its world premier last night during the Seattle International Film Festival.

The story is charming and the two plus hour film moves along without faltering. Newcomer Jessica Chastain is both beautiful and talented and portrays an ever-optimistic Jolene with the skill of a seasoned actor. The supporting cast includes well-known stars Frances Fisher, Chazz Palminteri, Dermot Mulroney, and Theresa Russell, but your eyes never leave Chastain.

The director is Dan Ireland, co-founder of the Seattle International Film Festival, which is the largest of its kind in the U.S. Ireland's earlier movies include The Whole Wide World and Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont. Great work, Dan! I hope everyone comes out to see Jolene.
