Finding Jenua is a touching work of art that tells the story of one woman's descent into memory loss and another's new found connection to the world and people around her. This film gently shows how relationships bloom out of the unlikeliest places. Mixing humor with human sadness, the characters are well-fleshed out and easily draw you into their own worlds. You want to go on the journey with them and the filmmaker takes you there, guiding you through the pitfalls of the characters' lives while letting you know, it's OK to be human, even if one if very frail. Both lead actresses are mesmerizing, so different and yet their chemistry is palpable. When they are on screen together, I found I could not look away. The subject matter is so relevant and anyone who has an elderly grandparent or relative in their lives can relate. With all the terribly written and overproduced drivel out there, Finding Jenua is a refreshing piece of work by a new and exciting filmmaker.
