The description of Henry Jaglom’s Irene in Time makes the film sound stereotypical at best.
Not surprisingly, Irene, played by Tanna Frederick, has issues because her dad sailed off into the sunset (yes, really) when she was little. Her love life is in shambles. She commiserates with her group of friends who all likely have their own daddy issues. And, of course, there’s a lesbian: Irene’s best friend Jo Jo, played by Kelly DeSarla, who had a small role in Wedding Crashers.
We can probably bet Jo Jo will have plenty of cliche things to say about men and why Irene has no luck with them — five bucks says she’ll probably suggest Irene switch teams.
According to FilmJournal.com:
No wonder the New York Times review says the film is “a valentine to women and a letter bomb to men.”
In the trailer, which you can see below, Irene tells her friends, “My dad left when I was really little, and I feel stupid with guys because I don’t know what to look for.”
Wow. Way to force-feed us the point, Jaglom.
The bright side? There are supposedly some “girls kissing.” Enough to get you interested?
