Jocelyn Towne is the latest actor to wear a number of different hats on a movie with her new feature film, I Am I. Not only did she write, executive produce and direct, but she also stars in the movie as Rachael, a young woman mourning the death of her mother when she becomes reacquainted with her estranged father, Gene (played by Kevin Tighe).
Rachael wants to get to know him better, but she soon realizes that her father is suffering from memory loss and is convinced that Rachael is actually his wife/her mother. After trying and failing to make him remember who she really is, Rachael decides to play along with her father’s delusions and pretends to be her mother in order to get to know him better. But what starts off as a joyful reunion soon becomes a race against time as Rachael comes to see that this can’t last forever.
The press day for I Am I was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City, California last week, and it brought out several of the film’s stars. Jocelyn was joined by her husband Simon Helberg, who plays her step brother Seth in the movie, as well as her co-stars Kevin Tighe and Jason Ritter, who portrays Jonathan, a worker at the assisted living home where Gene is residing.
