About the Movie

Two high school sweethearts run into each other in a grocery store parking lot after 20 years. Amanda is married with two kids, and Jim is in town to take care of his recently deceased mother’s estate. What begins as just a cup of coffee turns into a day of rediscovering the town they grew up in and sharing stories. As the day progresses, they stop feeling like strangers and rediscover the old familiar feeling they had when they were each other’s everything – as well as a big secret from their past.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Blue Jay is wistful and beautifully acted until the moment Amanda produces an unsent letter from Jim that she has discovered among the piles of old clothes and keepsakes. Nostalgia gives way to melodrama. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Oct 13, 2016

Fresh: Though the film largely trains on the simple, dialogue-fueled interaction of two people, it feels more spectacular than theatrical, showcasing the acting prowess of two master performers feeding on mutual chemistry and performative bravado. – Joey Nolfi, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 6, 2016

Fresh: Small but stirring, thanks mostly to Sarah Paulson. – Jon Frosch, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 15, 2016

Fresh: Even after twenty years apart, Amanda and Jim can ask each other the questions no one else would dare to, and understand the answers that go beyond words. – Serena Donadoni, Village Voice, Oct 5, 2016

Great acting and directing

I love movies like this.

Simply Wonderful!

A well paced, deeply honest and humorous romantic comedy... Best I've seen in a while.

Pure Magic

This movie casts a spell on you. Paulson is fantastic and Duplass gives the best performance of his career. Blue Jay is honest, real, and dripping with nostalgia.
