Writer/Director Josh Mond’s James White is the semi-autobiographical story of a floundering young man in his 20s (Christopher Abbott), who you wouldn’t care about except for the fact he is devoted to his dying mother (Cynthia Nixon).
This is Mond’s first feature and thanks to Abbott and Nixon, as well as Scott Mescudi, he does an admirable job.
Nixon fans, especially, will be pleasantly surprised at the depth of feeling she brings to her role.
Catch it on Netflix.
I give James White a 3.6 out of 5.
