If ever there was a film that was perfectly attuned to the current Zeitgeist, it would be THE JONESES. First-time writer/director Derrick Borte imbues a serious core theme -- the wobbly undercurrents of a frenetic consumer culture -- with humor, warmth and shots of clever, zesty fun.
Demi Moore and David Duchovny star as a seemingly perfect couple who, along with their equally perfect teenagers -- Amber Heard (Zombieland, Pineapple Express) and Ben Hollingsworth (The Beautiful Life) -- move into an upscale gated community. The Joneses have better goods and game than any other family in town. The only problem is they're not a family -- they are employees of a stealth marketing organization, and they know how to make everyone else want what they've got.
