King Jack

Director: Felix Thompson (2016)

There’s a royal heart powering this coming of age adventure which captures the agonies of teen life with a clear and unsentimental eye.

In a small down market US town, Jack is engaged in a running feud with the older local bully.

Charlie Plummer stands out in a tremendous young cast whose captivating performances are full of nuance and honesty.

Resentful when his single parent mother lumbers him with his 12 year old cousin. A day of selfies, cigarettes and switchblades leads to a momentous party.

Assured and engaging, King Jack’s harsh charm disguises it’s thoroughbred cinematic breeding.
