Tribeca: Interview with Jane Weinstock - Co-Writer/Director of The Moment

I was traveling a lot during this year's Tribeca Film Festival but thanks to technology I was able to catch some of the movies that I really wanted to see. One of those was the Jennifer Jason Leigh starrer, The Moment, written and directed by Jane Weinstock. It was a prototype Jennifer Jason Leigh film. Broody, moody, fucked up and confused. She plays a war photographer suffering PTSD not knowing what is real and what is imagined.
