Kent Jones on Misty Upham with Benicio Del Toro in Arnaud Desplechin's Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian: "So what I remember of Misty is that she spoke and moved quietly, as if she were holding something in balance, something fragile."
Kent Jones, who co-wrote the screenplay for Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian, calls to mind director Arnaud Desplechin's enthusiastic reaction when Misty Upham was cast opposite Benicio Del Toro as Jimmy P's love interest Jane. Kent shares with us how Misty Upham felt about the way John Wells' August: Osage County was promoted and his reaction to her role as Johnna in the film, as well as Michelle Thrush's (Gayle Picard) and Misty's Jimmy P Cannes experiences.
