RISING STAR ACTRESS JENN GOTZON GOES FROM SMALL ROLE IN ‘FROST/NIXON’ ON CAPITOL HILL TO LEADING LADY IN ‘DOONBY’ SCREENINGS IN NATION’S CAPITAL
WASHINGTON DC (Jan. 23, 2013) – Actress Jenn Gotzon, whose career broke after portraying President Nixon’s First Daughter Tricia Nixon in a small role in 2009 Academy Award Nominated Best Film “Frost/Nixon,” is set to grace the real Nation’s Capital, a four-year President’s term later, screening the first of her seven films she stars in to release 2013, “Doonby.”
Cast as the love interest opp. “The Dukes of Hazzard” heartthrob John Schneider in the British writer/director Peter Mackenzie film, Gotzon plays the wild leading lady, who’s both smitten with and suspicious of the chivalry, heroism and seeming omnipresence of her town’s newest resident, Sam Doonby.
“Jenn Gotzon reveals character with an extraordinary emotional range better than almost anyone in Hollywood today!” states Dr. Ted Baehr, critic and founder of top family film review site Movieguide.
The mystery movie praised by Vatican’s L’Osservatore Romano states, “Doonby is a moving and thought-provoking psychological thriller…that will linger in your mind and obsess your consciousness”. The theme is pertinent to the debates of morality in our nation helping impact people’s choices in a positive manner. Within the film, a cameo role by Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade) making “Doonby” courageous to show in the Nation’s Capital during the March for Life’s 39th Anniversary. Both free film showings, Jan 24, 7pm at Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th Street NW and Jan 25, 4p at (Marriott) Residence Inn 333 E Street SW. Washington DC, are sponsored by NET TV, a new television station broadcasting uplifting movies through Verizon Fios Video on Demand in over 18 cities nationwide. “Doonby” actors Jenn Gotzon and Joe Estevez (host of NET TV’s Faith Film Festival) will be in attendance along with film’s director Peter Mackenzie and associate producer Steve Doherty.
Gotzon speaks up as a role model through her motivational program “Inspiring Audiences” to schools, churches and festivals across the country. Doherty manages her outreach program. She states, “With all the hopelessness and shootings, there’s an underlying root of destruction that is heartbreaking to our nation, our world. I seek films to work on that give back to humanity,” which is a core principal behind NET TV, where Gotzon, as of 2013, heralds as their spokesperson.
Scheduled for theatrical release this April, Gotzon plays a historical character in French & Indian War drama “Alone Yet Not Alone.” This spring, Gotzon’s slated to film family-action movie “Wheeler” with Jennifer Hudson, cowboy western “Gold Revenge” and Savannah based thriller “Sinking Sand.”
