The monochromatic drama film sees Phoenix, in his first film since Joker, as documentary filmmaker Johnny. As he works on a project involving interviews with children across the United States, he forges an unexpected bond with his eight-year-old nephew Jesse, portrayed by Woody Norman, while they travel cross-country.
Joining Phoenix and Norman are Gaby Hoffman, Molly Webster, Jaboukie Young-White and Scoot McNairy. C’mon C’mon had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day Weekend and is set to screen at the New York Film Festival on October 4, however a wide release date is yet to be confirmed.
