Life isn’t on Jim’s side. A sullen outcast in a small Welsh town, he’s continually harassed by his classmates and ignored by his parents. When a mysteriously James Dean-like American neighbor (Emile Hirsch) shows up next door promising to make him a cool kid, Jim’s life is radically upended, with dangerous consequences. Offbeat and surreal, Just Jim is an indelible plunge into the dark side of teenage discontent.
