Inspired by true experiences of grief and growing up, Sophie Jones provides a stirring portrait of a sixteen year old. Stunned by the untimely death of her mother and struggling with the myriad challenges of teendom, Sophie tries everything she can to feel something again, while holding herself together in this sensitive, acutely realized and utterly relatable coming-of-age story, executive produced by Nicole Holofcener.


Director/co-writer Jessie Barr and co-writer/star Jessica Barr share more than just the same name. The cousins both lost a parent to cancer when they were each 16, and that shared experience informs their film. The story is inspired by Jessica's experience grieving the loss of her mother. Director/co-writer Jessie immersed herself in the lives of local Portland teenagers and worked closely with them while drawing upon her own experience of loss, resulting in the film's authenticity, which combines poetic realism with an honest portrayal of grief and girlhood.
