The Joneses

Filmmaker Moby Longinotto’s fascinating, thoroughly candid documentary invites audiences to pull up a chair at the never-dull family table in a Mississippi trailer-park home. Everything is on the menu: dashed dreams, seething resentments, sexual awakenings, and dollops of unconditional love. Overseeing all the tumult is unflappable, seventy-three-year-old transgender matriarch Jheri Jones, whose dedicated ministrations keep her family going.
