“Jenn Plotzke is director-proof. Any note you give, she incorporates in a nuanced and skillful way. Whenever we shot a scene with her, I somehow felt swept right off my feet. Dazzling. Charismatic. Funny and bold. A tremendous actress.” –Jeremiah Kipp, director of Fizzle and Lost + Found
“Seriously, though, Jennifer Plotzke is absolutely stellar here. She takes Milton/Sweeney’s dialogue and turns it into an absolute work of cinematic art.” –Richard Propes, The Independent Critic
“Given the complexity of Milton’s language, Lost + Found would be inaccessible to most audiences but for the excellent performance of Jennifer Plotzke. Her portrayal is powerful, yet nuanced. Milton’s poem is ground zero for why many of us prefer the sexiness and sultriness…Plotzke captures this expertly, and I applaud her for the sweet perfection of her Satan.” –P Owen Fasso, Death Ensemble (review of Lost + Found)
