Description: Recent high school graduate Jerome Platz (Max Minghella) is determined to become the next influential artistic mastermind like his idol Pablo Picasso. Free from the oppressive world of bullies and peer pressure, he is ready for a fresh start as an art student at the Strathmore Institute. Oddly enough, he’s lucky to somehow catch the attention of his dream girl, Audrey (Sophia Myles), the artist’s model. Unfortunately for him, her affection soon shifts to Jerome’s preppy classmate, Jonah (Matt Keeslar). Although Jerome considers Jonah to be an artistic hack, he begins to copycat his nemesis’s style in an attempt to win the girl back. When that doesn’t work, he turns to the maudlin local boozer and failed artist Jimmy (Jim Broadbent) in search of help and eventually appropriates Jimmy’s strikingly vicious paintings as his own. No matter what he does, he struggles in his attempts to vie for Audrey’s affection and cannot get any recognition for his work from his self-absorbed art teacher, Professor Sandiford (John Malkovich). When a killer on the loose begins to murder people on campus, Jerome may just have an unusual way to exploit the otherwise disturbing events to his advantage.
