“One of the most unexpected and inspired movie pairings in recent memory.”—Village Voice

Jimmy P stars Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro and the extraordinary French actor Mathieu Amalric in a true story about two very different men who build a unique and powerful bond through psychotherapy. A traumatized WWII vet and Native American Blackfoot, Jimmy Picard (Del Toro) is labeled schizophrenic by a military hospital that is confused by his condition. The French anthropologist and Native American researcher Georges Devereux (Amalric) is called in to make sense of the troubling patient. Through increasingly vivid conversations the two develop a compelling friendship and explore Jimmy’s memories and dreams as if they were a pair of detectives. This is the first new film in five years by director Arnaud Desplechin (Kings & Queen, A Christmas Tale), who visited the Wex in 2005 for a complete retrospective of his work. (114 mins., DCP)
