JUST INES takes the audience on a deeply personal journey into the life of Tom Jackson.
Tom is perceived as having everything: a great career, a beautiful wife - an ideal life. But behind this façade of perfection, Tom is living a lie.
When his wife threatens to leave him, Tom’s tightly wound composure finally cracks. He lashes out and the consequences are something to be reckoned with. Tom is sent to prison – and his life, as he knew it, is gone forever. After losing his job, his wife and his identity he is forced to start afresh alone. Self-doubt and loneliness now seem to dominate his days. He eventually befriends a young girl called PJ and his life seems to regain a bit of colour and warmth from their slowly ensuing friendship. But then Tom meets his beautiful French neighbour Inès. A tender connection develops among them. This quietly mysterious woman intrigues Tom. When he finds out about her life, it finally puts everything in Tom’s own story into perspective.
There might be damage, but there is always hope.
"Just Inès turned out to be a wonderful film, which combines a realistic environment with a touching and poetic story."
– Nicole Hess, Die Rheinpfalz
