Cannes '15: Visit Films Licenses “Just Jim” and “The Nymphets”

Visit Films has announced the sale of two SXSW premieres. Invincible Pictures will release “Just Jim” in the U.S. and Gravitas Ventures will release “The Nymphets in the U.S. and Canada. Both releases are slated for later in 2015.

Just Jim
is a singular dark comedy starring Emile Hirsch (“Prince Avalanche,””Into the Wild”) and Craig Roberts (“Submarine”). Set in a small
Welsh town, the film follows a teenage outcast (Jim) who tries to become the ‘cool kid’ when an enigmatic American (Dean) moves in next door and takes him
under his wing. All Jim wants is for something exciting to happen but by the end, he realizes that his life was fine the way it was. And he is happy with
fine. Just Jim is the writing and directing debut of the young and promising Craig Roberts.

The Nymphets
is a sexy, provocative thriller that captures a night of debauchery between a 30-something man and the two rowdy young girls he invites to party in his
loft. The film stars Kip Pardue (“The Rules of Attraction,” “Remember the Titans”) and is written and directed by acclaimed commercial
director Gary Gardner.

Visit Films is a film sales company based in New York, whose mission is to sell unique and fascinating American and international independent films. “Krisha,” another title presented by Visit
Films at the Critic’s Week in Cannes was recently bought for U.S. distribution by A24.
