Like a cork in a choppy, polluted harbor, Jolene ( Jessica Chastain) keeps getting sucked under and bobbing up to the surface again, soiled but buoyant. Life deals her blows, but each time she takes the punch, absorbs it, and shrugs it off with the same lopsided grin of optimism on her pretty freckled face. Director Dan Ireland gives her the chance to shine and surrounds her with solid performances from a good cast. Jolene writer Dennis Yares (son of Santa Fe gallery owner Riva Yares, who produced) adapted his screenplay from an E.L. Doctorow short story. Dennis Yares attends the Friday, Oct. 29, screening. Rated R. 118 minutes. CCA Cinematheque, Santa Fe.
