Jimmy’s End suggests a world that seems to start in our own, in an England that then takes a step into what might be a parallel world filled with mystery, mysticism and dread, where otherwise mundane lines of dialogue, pop ballads and regional British stage acts take only another meaning.
A former rugby champion and son of a legendary rugby player, Jo (Gérard Lanvin), still mourning the death of his adored wife, raises his son alone. Jo wants his son Tom to follow the family tradition. While Tom is excellent at math, he is hopeless as a rugby player and doesn’t make the team.
In this leisurely, meditative drama, Jo-Jo hears strange voices but it’s nothing to worry about, since she’s so passive and inactive that there’s little danger of her acting on their instructions in a way which will endanger herself or others.
