On paper, everything about The Incredible Jessica James sounds redundant and cliche. A young New York City transplant living in gentrified Brooklyn struggles to find success in the arts, she’s still not over a recent break-up, then meets and falls for an unlikely guy. We’ve certainly heard this story before, but its a sharp, refreshing sense of humor, and a stellar performance from actress-comedian Jessica Williams that brings Jim Strouse’s Closing Night Film to life.
