The Book of Jane


Product Information

Duration:117 minutes


Alice, a Professor of Comparative Religion, is writing a book exalting the ancient values of pre-Hellenic goddess mythologies and Feminine deity worship. One day she meets Jane, an enigmatic older woman who roams the university campus, sleeps under a bridge, and rattles Alice with her disturbing insights. At home, Alice is the muse to her partner Colette, an artist who is painting a series of goddess portraits. When Colette hears about Jane, she encourages a reluctant Alice to invite her over for dinner. "The Book of Jane" is a story of three women bound together by fate to advance the values of an ancient culture but at a deep cost no one expected.

Editorial Reviews

The concepts raised in The Book of Jane are profound and often complex. The central performances by Luna Olcott and Marianne Shine brilliantly absorb the idiosyncratic failings and triumphs of their respective characters, resulting in a pair of in-depth creations that resonate with a myriad of emotions. 5 stars.

Phil Hall FilmThreat (5 stars) Read the full review

As an experimental film, "The Book of Jane" is more of a journey and an experience than classic narrative storytelling. It is a journey about personal transformation and the process of letting go. The aspects of the Goddess presented are just detailed reflections that make this transformative journey a powerful and natural one for women.
