Jen is here for "The Yellow Birds," a drama involving the war in Iraq. Says imdb: "Two young soldiers, Bartle (Alden Ehrenreich) and Murph (Tye Sheridan) navigate the terrors of the Iraq war under the command of the older, troubled Sgt. Sterling (Jack Huston).

All the while, Bartle is tortured by a promise he made to Murph's mother before their deployment."

She previously filmed "Wanderlust" and "Mother's Day" in Atlanta.
