Mr. Jones - Director's Cut
Filmfest 2006

MR. JONES is a man suffering from bipolar disorder, a disease that affords him periods of intense emotional pleasure and expansiveness but which also results in periods of suicidal depression. Libbie, a doctor at a psychiatric hospital, takes an interest in his condition, and also in him - after all, he’s intelligent, perceptive, and charming. Mr. Jones likes her, also, and puts enough trust in her to allow himself to be treated. But the longer he spends at the hospital, the more he misses the soaring highs that are a part of the man he considers himself to be.
