Adam speaks to CBC Arts about Great Great Great by Adam Jones

Some more CBC love, an awesome interview with our director (writer/producer) Adam Garnet Jones- talking about everything Great Great Great and his collaboration with Sarah Kolasky (writer/producer/star). Thanks to Oliver Skinner (and Peter Knegt) at CBC Arts. Still smiling from our world premiere the other night at the Canadian Film Fest.


"standout" review in Brief Take by Adam Jones

Charles Trapunski at Brief Take says: "Great performances all around, watch out for Meredith Cheesbrough’s stunning turn, with the standout being Kolasky in a vulnerable, intimate performance . . . ."
Bravo to Meredith Cheesbrough and Sarah Kolasky, under the brilliant direction of Adam Garnet Jones. Countdown to our World Premiere - tomorrow (Thursday, March 23) at the Canadian Film Fest, 7PM screening at the Scotiabank Theatre Toronto.

Now Magazine loves GGG! by Adam Jones

Norm Wilner of NOW Magazine says:
“It’s a moody, occasionally piercing character study, and Kolasky – who co-wrote and co-produced the film with Jones – is terrific in a tricky role, keeping us on Lauren’s side as she acts out in increasingly risky ways by hinting at the panic driving those actions. It’s a tour de force performance, played in a minor key.”

World Premiere of Great Great Great! by Adam Jones

I am delighted to announce the Upcoming World Premiere of Great Great Great at the Canadian Film Fest 2017!

Join us on Thursday, March 23, 2017, 7:00 PM at the Scotiabank Theatre. Writer/Director Adam Garnet Jones and Writer/Star Sarah Kolasky will be on hand with other cast and crew members for the intro and post Q&A.

In the span of Lauren and Tom’s five-year relationship, they have never had a fight. Their sex life is fine. They get along fine. Everything points to marriage, until Lauren suddenly sees a lifetime of “just fine” yawning ahead of her, and it immediately makes her hungry for a better, fuller future. She just needs to decide what “better” really means.
