Formerly titled “Jimmy Picard”, Desplechin’s movie is actually an adaptation of Georges Devereux’ text “Psychothérapie d’un Indien des Plaines: Réalité et rêve”. The drama revolves around Blackfoot veteran’s return from World War II and his resulting struggle with mental illness.
In other words, the movie tells the true story of a friendship between a Native American soldier identified under the alias Jimmy Picard – and a French pyshoanalyst. It follows Picard as he returns from World War II suffering from a variety of symptoms for which no physical cause can be found. After being referred to the famous Winter Hospital in Kansas, he strikes up a friendship with Devereux through his counseling sessions.
Benicio Del Toro plays the title role – Jimmy Picard, Mathieu Amalric plays his psychoanalyst Georges Devereux and the rest of the cast also includes Elya Baskin, Gina McKee, Misty Upham and Linda Boston.
