I was drawn to "Jane Street" by the intriguing premise: "What if a provincial young man from a small town moved to New York City and ended up living with a lesbian couple who was trying to conceive a baby?". I was not disappointed. The film is fun, entertaining and thought-provoking all at the same time.
While the film was likely shot on a very low-budget, it has outstanding and very watchable young actors, particularly the captivating Jane Jensen. The story flows logically and builds nicely along its twisted course. The film is refreshing in that the director allows viewers to make their own decisions about what's right and wrong with society's attitudes instead of force-feeding a particular point of view.
"Jane Street" is billed as a comedy and while there were many funny moments the writer/director certainly had a lot on his mind. Dram/Com would be my take.
I recommend "Jane Street" as good fun. The current debate over gay/lesbian family/marriage rights makes this film timely with its slyly comic insight into the destructive effects of deep-rooted prejudice.
