Press for DRIFTWOOD

Jensen’s superb performance its big beating heart... Her performance here is one of the most intriguing and unique turns of our young year, perfectly capturing the purity of an emerging human — much in the same way Scarlett Johansson did during Under The Skin’s post manhunting domestic chapter. Each ensuing gesture and action she takes creates a stronger agency towards a defined self. A self who seeks independence. It’s mesmerizing stuff to be sure.

I was walking my dog in Williamsburg, Brooklyn one day and a hip, young dude stopped to talk to me.  He told me he liked my style and my shaved head.  He explained that he was walking around the park looking for people to take some pictures for a Scope ad the following day.  "Like, the mouthwash?" I asked.  I showed up the next day, met Jason Nocito and took the pictures above...   I got a lot of texts that summer from people who had seen the ad in magazines.  "I'm freaking out, this girl in the ad looks exactly like you!"

It’s hard to believe that this is the first feature film performance by Joslyn Jensen, who won a Special Jury Award at Slamdance, the Debut Performance Award at the Florida Film Festival, and most recently the Silver Astor for Best Actress at the Mar Del Plata International Film Festival. For much of the movie, she is either alone on-screen or acting alongside Ron Carrier who, save for the occasional drool or boner, is mute, unmoving, and barely conscious. It’s an incredible challenge for an actor to not only perform under those circumstances, but also to communicate without the aide of dialog, voice-over, or other more obvious means of exposition. Jensen is left to convey so many of Without’s tonal shifts through gesture, facial expressions, and other subtle means, and she is emotionally spot-on every step of the way.

…a bravura performance from Joslyn Jensen.
— The Hollywood Reporter
Lead Joslyn Jensen nails her characterization. She understands this girl, and consistently shows with her performance a sense for the mind of a young woman who is going through some serious shit, confused and lost... The lazy film critic adjective for this kind of performance is “brave.” Forget that, this is confidence and talent, and it’s a pleasure to watch.
