actor . writer . director

Sophie Jones is a lovely film. Moving, confident and unusual. I love Jessie Barr’s direction, the quiet of the film and the compelling performances...Jessie Barr has made a terrific first feature. I look forward to seeing what she does next.

We should all keep a eagle-eye on Sophie Jones, the feature directorial debut of Jessie Barr
(the contagiously talented co-creator of so many short-form gems).  I get a shortness of breath thinking about how this beautiful story will transfer to the big screen with such grace.  Can I pre-order tickets yet???

Jessie is unstoppable.
