Barry Sulivan is a cynical gangster who controls the Neptune Beach waterfront. He runs a numbers racket with the local soda shop owner: the police are in his pocket and the local hoods are on his payroll.
George, a passive and sometimes expressionless Nigerian, arrives at the Buffalo airport to meet the women his family has arranged for him to marry. He's late, she's gone on to Niagara Falls, so he has two days, traveling slowly and reluctantly, to get to the wedding. At the airport, he meets Alicia, a lively Latin, going with her boyfriend to see her family. George is smitten. Partly by happenstance, and partly by the designs of Gerard, a romantic and manic Frenchman George meets at the airport, his path crosses Alicia's a few times. As Gerard puts it, George should seize the chance to see what happens with Alicia - he can always jump tomorrow. Can George take on fate and custom? Written by
I was charmed by the short, Jorge, taped it and saw it many times. I was teaching film, and used it in class to exemplify a well-made, comic and moving short film. Clicking around on digital TV, I was happy to find myself watching the same delightful, bewildered man on his further adventures.
I liked Jump Tomorrow enormously, found it touching and laugh-out-loud funny. Tunde Adepimbe has charisma even when he's struck dumb. All the characters are warm and natural, and the script allows for an impromptu feel, even when it's heading toward a well-structured conclusion. A graceful good-hearted road movie. Thank heaven for independent films. I look forward to Joel Hopkins' future work with great anticipation!
