Movie Reviews

A Sleeper of a movie
Christina V. Vujovich | Southern California | 06/20/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Channel-surfing on cable, I came across "Jack". Was very touched by the story and the acting by all the players. Stockard Channing is always consistent....she never fails in a performance. Ron Silver is a familiar name to me, but to watch him in this role, playing Dad, and a gay Dad at that, and the way he approached his life changes as it related to his son...understandable. He is a consummate performer. BUT..having read other reviews about Anton Yeltsin's performance as Jack being bland, or otherwise understated, I must disagree...This boy played an adolescent boy, coming of age, to the hilt...the dialogue and narration by him was touching. I'm no film critic, but I liked this film enough to sit down at the puter and find out more about it, and the opportunity to express my thoughts...GREAT little film, story...acting by ALL was was, in a word, entertainment! And that's what it's all about. Thank you, cast (and crew) for Jack!"
Good script and an excellent cast

"Jack is a fifteen year-old boy dealing with the difficult navigation through adolescence. To further complicate his life his parents divorce because his father is gay. Jack's once secure world is turned upside down.

The movie has a well-written script and good performances from the excellent cast. Veteran actors Stockard Channing and Ron Silver play the parents. Jack is played by Anton Yeltsin, who was actually only thirteen when the movie was made. His sensitive performance in the title role is what really makes the story work.

Though nothing profound, this is an offbeat and better than average coming of age story.
