Come back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean Jimmy Dean by Ed Graczyk

Directed by Graham Gill

In a small-town dime store in West Texas, the 'Disciples of James Dean' gather for their twentieth reunion.  Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa.  One of them, a extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot.  The ladies' congenial reminiscences mingle with flashbacks to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning-but-familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.
