Jess & James 2015
Unrated | 1h 32min | Drama , Romance | 17 August 2017 (Argentina)
Jess is a bohemian youth with secrets to hide from his shrewd parents. James feels trapped living with his irritable mother. After meeting for a sexual encounter, the two young men set off on a spontaneous road trip across rural Argentina to reunite with Jess’ estranged brother. On their journey, they confront strange occurrences and engage in a ménage à trois affair that brings them closer. Their newly found affection grows, all while discovering a fresh vision of freedom and happiness. JESS & JAMES is a sexually charged road-trip movie, a love story, and a coming-of-age tale, set against the mythical landscape of the Argentinian Pampas.
I was enthralled with “Jess and James”. The acting is excellent and the story beautifully told . And the cinematography is memorable for its use of Argentina’s countryside, sky and clouds as a backdrop for a tastefully told love story.
