Jamesy Boy is a big surprise

5 second plot: James is a young guy that gets into trouble all the time. He's been institutionalized since he was 6. He's simply an angry kid. In his teens he gets convicted and put in jail. At first he needs to be the big man on campus, but after a while he realizes he needs to straighten up if he wants to make something of his life.

5 second review: I totally didn't expect it, but I kinda loved this film. The character is worked out really well and played with an enormous eye for detail. Scenes from the past and present move along simultaneously: that creates a perfect pace. Good job.

IMDb score: 6,1/10
