It is there that he meets a failed artist named Jimmy (Jim Broadbent) and an art model named Audrey (Sophia Myles). He immediately becomes smitten with Audrey. A series of hilarious events occur between Jerome and his roomates, a gay fashion designer, Matthew (Nick Swordson), and aspiring film maker, Vince (Ethan Suplee). Although his personal life is going well, he begins to realize art school is more difficult than he thought it to be. Meanwhile, the small college community is rattled by a serial killer, who the police call the Strathmore Strangler. Police are frustrated as it seems the killer never leaves a clue to his identity. One day Jerome decides to pay a visit to Jimmy's apartment in order to acquire a group of paintings he hopes will help win an art competition. But things take a turn for the worse when he finds himself in the middle of a predictament, while inside Jimmy's apartment. Watch Art School Confidential to see if Jerome can straighten his life out.
