Story


The ultimate teenage outcast road movie, "Jimmy and Judy" charts the path of a pair of outsiders who fall in love and out of control as they travel across an American landscape dotted with hypocrisy, materialism, drugs and violence.

Written and directed by Randall K. Rubin and Jon Schroder, "Jimmy and Judy" offers a fresh take on classic adolescent themes such as rebellion, love, and anger. A modern day "Bonnie & Clyde," the film traces the journey of Jimmy (Edward Furlong) and Judy (Rachael Bella), spirited young lovers who leave the comfortable numb of their suburban community in search of a better life in rural Kentucky.

Eschewing conventional cinematic grammar in favor of an intense, verite style of narrative, Rubin and Schroder use the immediacy of hand-held video to give "Jimmy and Judy" an unprecedented intimacy. The film unspools as an ongoing video diary, first of Jimmy's sociopathic pranks, then of the couple's blossoming romance and subsequent flight into a violent and anarchic middle-American wilderness. Throughout it all, "Jimmy and Judy" roots viewers to the spot, putting us directly in the shoes (and behind the camera) of its desperate lovers.

A provocative film that takes viewers on a wild ride, "Jimmy and Judy" is a moving, terrifying, bleakly hilarious, and fiercely powerful look at a young couple's attempt to break out of the mold and the price they must pay to do so.
