Storyline

Have you ever fallen in love with your best friend? Jamie is moving in 2 weeks from Chicago to New York hoping to become a Broadway actress. Her best friend Jessica is bummed because she's not-so-secretly in love with Jamie. As moving day gets closer, Jessica tries to make Jamie jealous by dating other girls. But Jessica's plan backfires, in a way she could never imagine. "Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together" is about two women whose codependent, loyal friendship is fraught with erotic tension, and trying to figure out how to grow together or how to grow apart. A romantic comedy with Musical numbers, "Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together" is inspired by independent films like "Show Me Love", "500 Days of Summer" and "Lost in Translation". Set in working class Chicago and infused with dance numbers, "Jamie and Jessie are Not Together' is a love letter to those gray areas of love and lust and to the young romances we will never forget.

Refreshingly different
3 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thank the Powers That Be (or in this case the makers of this film) for a queer-women focused film that does not contain any of the following:

-Lesbians committing suicide

  • Lesbians sleeping with men




-Lesbians dealing with coming out

  • Duels and insanity




  • Sex scenes that imply all women do in bed together is giggle and kiss




What this does have: Musical elements! Comedy and drama in good, not awkwardly transitioned doses. Quality sex scenes! Use of the word queer and great use of Chicago as a location. Authentic, REALISTIC looking women (in comparison to size zero, model- like straight women who don't know the first thing about being queer) Surprisingly amazing cinematography for an independent, presumably small-budget film.

I can't wait till this is on DVD and I hope everyone interested gets a chance to see it when it becomes available. You will not regret it. This is the movie I wish existed when I was younger. Instead I got Lost and Delirious...
