It’s better to burn out…than to do it like Jackie did.
The Jackie Movie is a mockumentary film written and produced by local independent filmmakers The Worthy Brothers (Victor Nolasco & Steven Rubin). It is a story that follows the career arc of a fictional rock star named Jackie. The film blends “rockumentary”-styled interviews with Jackie’s fellow bandmates, manager, lovers, critics, and fans with a satirical look on the rock and roll star lifestyle and ego.
Filmed in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia throughout 2013 using a modest budget, The Worthy Brothers used available assets and a network of local friends to complete the film. Truly an independent film, The Jackie Movie aims to shine a light on the nature of stardom in the music industry while entertaining its audience with unique, quirky, and flamboyant characters.
The film had a hugely successful, sold-out screening in November 2013 at The E Street Cinema in downtown Washington, DC.
