With an introduction by Elaine Mariner, Executive Director of Colorado Council on the Arts
Jackie and Lucy are two twenty-something best friends who’ve made an art of not doing much. They’re so inseparable that they’ve earned the collective moniker “Jucy.” Working together in an alternative video store, they smoke pot, play video games and actively encourage each other’s eccentricities and often-delusional world view.
Confident and unconventional in its depiction of female relationships, Jucy is expansive in tone, moving from the zany details of the everyday into a nuanced and dramatic portrayal of a friendship at a crossroads. Buoyed by the impressive comedic skills of Gasteen and Nelson, Jucy navigates the field between laughter and tears with energy and grace. One of the film’s many fine features is its deft observance of the undertones and intricacies of female communication, so rarely depicted in mainstream cinema. Jucy delivers one of its characters’ favourite things – a perfect “womantic” night out.
