"The key is to be mysterious…" Take a look at the first trailer for the directorial debut of a young actor, Craig Roberts, who you may recognize from films like Submarine, Jane Eyre, Red Lights, Neighbors or 22 Jump Street. Craig Roberts wrote and directed and stars in this film, Just Jim, which also co-stars Emile Hirsch. This is the story of a loner. Jim, 16, has no friends and is a bit weird. He eventually makes friends with Dean, a tough kid on the run who moves in next door, played by Hirsch. The cast includes Aneirin Hughes, Nia Roberts, Richard Harrington, Matthew Aubrey, Ryan Owen & Charlotte Randall. Check it out.

Here's the first official trailer for Craig Roberts' Just Jim, found on Vimeo (via The Film Stage):

    I like it! Emile Hirsch had so much potential as a young actor...I wonder if it was the studios or Hirsch that kept his career from really taking off?

      I agree, and while I quite enjoyed Speed Racer (mostly because I grew up on the cartoon and my son and I enjoyed bonding over the old cartoon dvd's) his career never really took off, mostly because the critics panned the movie so much (my opinion, anyway)

      I wonder that as well.

      Choking movie studio folks at Sundance haven't helped.

    This actually looks like fun.
  • 'This place is full of miserable bastards' Sums up the whole of Britain, looks funny though.
