Janie Jones is a 2010 American film by writer/director David M. Rosenthal. It stars Alessandro Nivola, Elisabeth Shue, Brittany Snow, and Abigail Breslin as the eponymous Janie Jones. The film makes extensive use of original music created by Gemma Hayes and Eef Barzelay and sung and played by Abigail Breslin and Alessandro Nivola. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 17, 2010.[2][3]


A 13-year old girl is abandoned by her meth-addicted former-groupie mother, after she informs Ethan Brand, an alcoholic, on-the-road, fading rock star, that Janie is his daughter, and he is not happy about it.



The films soundtrack was released on October 11, 2011[4] featuring songs written by Irish singer-songwriter Gemma Hayes and Israeli-born American Eef Barzelay. The songs on the album are performed by Abigail Breslin, Aleesandro Nivola, William Fitzsimmons and Gemma Hayes.[5]
