Watch Movie Trailer


Based on the bestselling novel by Robert Whitlow, Jimmy is a heartfelt family drama about a mentally challenged teenager (Ian Colletti) who sees beings no one else can. Jimmy doesn't always understand what he sees and hears, but he remembers it all with uncanny accuracy, which is why his lawyer father asks him to testify in a crucial trial. Jimmy's testimony saves the man from jail but has far-reaching consequences for himself, the people he loves, and their community.

Filled with quirky Southern characters who feel familiar but surprise us, the cast includes Ted Levine (Monk), Kelly Carlson (Everwood), Gregory Alan Williams (Remember the Titans), and Bob Gunton (The Shawshank Redemption). Jimmy has also been awarded the Dove Foundation's highest honor of five doves for viewers 12 and older.

Dove Worldview:

Young Jimmy, fourteen, is a special needs boy due to his mother falling in the bathtub while giving him a bath and she passed out and he was under the water for a period of time but survived. Jimmy has a fear of water but in a great scene he is baptized by film's end.

This movie features themes of overcoming odds and fears and Jimmy displays these things very well as he becomes a hero in the movie. We are more than pleased to award this movie our "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. It contains a strong salvation message.
