Storyline

At 19 years old, Andrew Jenks moved into an assisted living facility in Florida with two friends in order to document life there and to glean what lessons he could from the senior population. In turns moving, hilarious and disturbing, this documentary should be required viewing for every young adult with aging parents.

Won Best Picture & Best Documentary of the 2006 Phoenix Film Festival
31 March 2006 | by rcmcnabbSee all my reviews

I asked the Phoenix Film Festival Guest Relations Director to recommend a movie which she heard was very good. She said "Andrew Jenks, Room 335" was getting great reviews from the Phoenix Film Festival attendees. I scheduled to see the film and I must say the movie was outstanding. Andrew Jenks, director, actor and nice guy was in attendance at the festival. By the way, the attendees voted Andrew's film "Andrew Jenks, Room 335" the winner of "Best Picture" and "Best Documentary" of the 2006 Phoenix Film Festival. The movie explains the what,why,how,when,who and where of this real life drama, with a cast of caring and sharing characters(seniors who "live" at Harbor Place, Flordia) who give us hope that there is an important role for older senior citizens who can't be counted out just because they are in an assisted living facility. Each real and actual person in this film could not have been casted from central casting more perfectly than the real residents of Harbor Place. These people become important to the viewing public as they are important to each other and to Andrew Jenks and crew. Andrew has brought an important film to the public and has been rewarded with "Best Picture" and "Best Documentray" of the outstanding Phoenix Film Festival of 2006. This story deserved to be the a winner here in Phoenix Arizona where like Flordia we have many of the senior citizen types who Andrew has filmed. This film should be available to every institution where older American citizens provide a great service to each other and the public. Older, younger-oh heck lets say everyone-people everywhere in the USA should view this film. We see older can be better and there is a place for senior people to contribute their most important time to us all even under difficult circumstances. A joyful, tragic, funny, sad, happy epic of assisted living in a caring facility is the subject. We will expect more films from Andrew Jenks and his crew who not only filmed but participated in the drama. This documentary/drama with filmmaker participation is wonderful. Perhaps a return to Harbor Place will be in the cards. Original and wonderful, a real treat and a piece of art which reaches our heart. A great idea of unplanned events which reflects "What's going on now in assisted care" is now a full length movie. You are pulled into the lives of these people in a unique way and you are amazed and hooked after a while. Youth is not always wasted on the young and-"Andrew Jenks Room 335"-proves it!
