Storyline

It's been a rough couple of years for Alan Mangold, a tightly-wound professor in his 30's who dreams of a better life beyond his shoebox apartment... if only he could complete his opus, "Orphan Bastard." When his Nana dies, Alan and his better-half Amanda must post an internet ad at the university to find a student who will share the costs of the emergency cross-country trip. Enter Jeffie: an inflammatory individual who fancies himself a scholar, a poet, and the embodiment of enlightened living. At first, the couple's travel companion seems to have responded randomly to their ad, but as the trip progresses, it becomes clear that Jeffie's presence relates to a web of tightly-held secrets between Alan and Amanda. Amidst infidelity, blackmail, run-ins with the law, and a painfully bad demo tape, the ride with Jeffie is unpredictable at every turn and by journey's end no one is left unchanged.

Smart and kind movie with soft, unusually structured humor...
23 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Had a rare chance to watch "Jeffie". You sit through the whole film in a nice and pleasant atmosphere of unusually soft, kind and originally structured set of jokes. Altghough a passenger character does not actually easily evolve your feeling of sympathy, still the whole set of kindness and romanticism leaves you with a very good aftertaste, and that feeling stays for long. When the film was over I felt the same way I remember pretty good like after another good on-the-road-story movie, which is still my favorite. I mean "Sudeways". I think these two very creative and intelligent works make a nice tradition of sharing sincere warmth with soft jokes on a very well matching background of good music. Don't miss the "United Film Festival" at Cobble Hill Cinemas on Oct.26 at 7pm. Good luck to this very talented work at the festival.
