There's plenty of inspiration to be found in "Jamesy Boy," the based-on-a-true-story tale of a jailed street tough who, after much trial and error, finds redemption and a productive life inside the margins of society. But that's an old warhorse of a story, and there's simply not enough up on the screen to make this take on it appreciably different from so many that have come before. Watching it, there's the nagging suspicion that there should be more to all this, and the occasional scene hints at what makes the story of James Burns distinctive enough to warrant big-screen treatment.

White and Anderson, business partners since 1990 when they founded an Annapolis-based production company now known as Filmsters, have traveled the film-festival circuit across America and always believed Maryland's capital was a natural for an industry "close-up. " "We've been to festivals in Colorado Springs - they have mountains, we have water - but the towns are not much different," White said.

Chances are you've never heard of Spencer Lofranco. But chances are that's going to change this year. At 21, the Toronto native is about to have what promises to be a pretty impressive rookie season. In addition to his first film, Trevor White's "Jamesy Boy," which was filmed on location throughout the Baltimore area and opens today, he's also in Adam Rodgers' "At Middleton," opening Jan. 31. And this past Monday in Australia, he started working on his third feature, "Unbroken," a biopic of Olympic runner and World War II POW Louis Zamperini.

Growing up in Annapolis, Tim and Trevor White were hardly inseparable. Each brother had his own set of friends and pursued his own interests: Trevor discovered a passion for film early on, while Tim seemed more adrift. But recently, a shared commitment to cinema has brought the pair closer than ever, as they work toward the release of their first full-length movie. "Jamesy Boy," shot in and around Baltimore over a five-week period that ended this month, stars Mary-Louise Parker, Ving Rhames and James Woods.
