It's the IndieFest late show and we're quite sure that Jimmy and Judy is exactly what you're looking for. Mental illness, ultraviolence, sexual perversion, meth cults, nudity, family dysfunction, home movies, and tender heart-warming romance are the order of the day. Join Jimmy and Judy as they discover that true love is possible – even in Hell.

Welcome to suburbia. Jimmy is intelligent, mentally ill and obsessed with his handheld video camera. He manipulates everyone, and may have been expelled from college for talking his roommate into committing suicide on camera. Soon Jimmy focuses on Judy, a timid ingénue who's constantly bullied at school. He exacts revenge upon her enemies, tapes himself in the act and Judy falls hopelessly in love with her passionate protector.

Exploring sex, drugs, gunplay, even petty theft, the two videotape everything they do, but their escalating antics eventually lead to disaster. After a freak series of events, they find themselves on the run from the law (in the underbelly of the American midwest). With nothing to lose (except each other), they rampage across the country in search of a near-mythical libertarian nirvana run by the elusive Uncle Rodney.

The excellent use of a clever concept, a well-developed script, daring performances by Edward Furlong and Rachael Bella (and their undeniable onscreen chemistry) ensure that the tale of Jimmy and Judy will stay with you long after the lights come up.
