Watch With Jen - S2: E17 - Summer Adventures with Jessica Ellis

A witty and wonderful writer-director currently living in Los Angeles, Jessica Ellis attended UCLA and the prestigious American Film Institute. Having recently made her feature filmmaking debut with the lovely coming-of-age movie What Lies West, Jessica's film is now available for pre-order at all online retailers and will be released on VOD on May 11. A bright light on Twitter, in this episode, she takes us behind-the-scenes of What Lies West before dissecting some of her favorite summer adventure movies, including Dirty Dancing, Now and Then, and The Way, Way Back from her perspective as a cinematic storyteller in her own right.
