Thirteen-year-old Jesse wants to be an artist, but believes that his mundane middle-class Toronto life has left him unprepared. After reading a book on what it takes to be a "true-artist", he sets out looking for risk, ecstasy, wildness and women. Amy George is a microbudget independent drama about the time in a boy's life when he's at his least likeable.Written by
Do you think Jesse's likeable to other people?
People other than his parents?
We like him. Maybe that's enough.
But what if he never becomes likeable?
He's a thirteen-year-old boy. Nobody likes thirteen-year-old boys. What's so important about being well-liked?

The runtime was two minutes longer when it premiered at the Wisconsin Film Festival. It was cut down to its current length for its Canadian premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. See more »
Not completely awful but really boring. No story, looks like ad lib dialogue, poor casting, filming is terrible, half the time super dark with no reason. It doesn't know where it's going and any direction it chooses, well it doesn't begin. Is this a story about a boy with a fixation on his neighbor, nope, is it a coming of age story, nope, is it a discovery of what it means to be an artist, nope. That sappy piano and ugly music at the end is really over the top, as though they failed throughout and had to somehow try to drive home some emotion. I wish I could find something redeeming but there isn't. It's sort of like high school budget meets every major cliché, but a collection of clichés does not make a film.
