JOE is a romantic comedy Written and Produced by Shara Ashley Zeiger (Monica) and Directed by Kaye Tuckeerman. Wonderful music and score by Leeran Z. Raphaely, along with lovely cinematagrophy by Samantha Pyra.
The heart of the film is Jillian, played beautifully by Bethany Nicole Taylor. Jillian feels like the friend we know, or the barista at our own coffee shop.
Jillian, a newly hired barista, meets the man of her dreams when she bumps into Joe (Sean Macglaughlin}, a high profile executive on the streets of New York. Rather than reveal herself for who she is, she makes herself out to have a great job in the fashion industry – so as not to lose Joe’s interest. Things turn awkward when she discovers his favorite coffee shop is also where she works.
The music, along with the back drop of New York, adds character and flavor to this film.
This film reminds us to embrace the essence of who we are – and to find someone who embraces it with us.
