Jimmy Grimble in a nutshell
A fairytale story of Jimmy Grimble, a shy Manchester schoolboy who is constantly being bullied at school. However, through football and some special boots he finds, he manages to gain enough confidence to lead his school football team towards the final of the local schools cup.
This movie is good example of how believing in yourself can get you far. The boots that Jimmy finds have no real magical powers, but they give the character the confidence to believe in his own abilities. And as in many movies of this nature, the storyline shows football as an escape from the grim realities of life.
