As the sun goes down on another week there’s still time to bring you something special – in this case it’s the first look at the poster for Craig Roberts’ debut film as a director, Just Jim.
Already established as a fine actor, Just Jim marks the first shout of an engaging new cinematic voice. The trailer, which can be seen below, gives a flavour of the dark heart of adolescence Roberts is navigating. He is the eponymous hero, stuck in the quagmire of his dead-end teenage years, smitten but socially inept and in need of a role model. Then someone moves in next to Jim, and that’s when everything changes.
Emile Hirsch is that mysterious new friend, and the long journey to self-discovery is, as Jim discovers, riddled with dangers unforeseen.
Our review of the film is due up shortly, the film is due out on the 25th of September and is released by Soda Pictures.

Life sucks for Jim. His best friend Michael is now hanging with the cool kids and Jim’s only companion is his dog. He’s stuck in a small town where nothing ever exciting happens, until…
Dean, a mysterious American moves in to the house next door. Dean is older, good looking and in Jim’s eyes the coolest guy he’s ever met. Jim can’t believe his luck. Dean offers him friendship, helps him win the girl of his dreams and he soon becomes the most popular boy in school. But when it turns out Dean is hiding a dark secret, Jim is forced to question if his newfound popularity is worth it.
