- The Guardian
In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbours, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.
"It is fully enjoyable as a piece of entertainment, and deeply valuable as a perspective-altering mirror of life." - LIMELIGHT
