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 really worth it.

  • Roberts is a clear talent for the future of British filmmaking - whether it's directing, writing or performing, he's unlikely to disappoint.

  • Despite being a little rough around the edges, Roberts has made an amusing coming-of-age tale which balances deadpan humour with a dark edge.

  • He [Craig Roberts] expertly nails both ambiance and characterization.

  • Just Jim, with Roberts as Jim, is another coming of age tale, this one enlivened by the appearance of Emile Hirsch as Jim's cool new neighbour and mentor. Slight.
