Magnolia Pictures offers a limited platform release to this weird little love story, which is currently available on VOD. Written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray, with animation by Brothers Quay, JACK & DIANE stars Juno Temple and Riley Keough as two teenage girls – one sweet and innocent, one tough as nails – who fall in love. Unfortunately, when the relationship sours, Diane’s body manifests her emotional torment in unexpected ways. The plotline is vague about the genre element, but the suggestion of Cronenberg-style body horror comes through a bit more in the trailer. The supporting cast includes Kylie Minogue, Dane DeHaan, Leo Fitzpatrick, Haviland Morris, Cara Seymour. 110 minutes. Rated R.
