Brenner also said, “As a wife and mother of two girls, I feel that the now and then is crucial in bringing a movie like Call Jane into the world. Given this cultural insecurity, and with so many of our rights as women besieged, I know that telling this important story cannot be more timely or necessary, and I couldn’t be more excited to work with such an extraordinary group of creatives and strong women the top. ”
