King Jack (2016)
Critic Consensus: Hard-hitting and honest yet sensitive, King Jack is an uncommonly affecting coming-of-age drama and a powerful calling card for debuting writer-director Felix Thompson.

Critic Reviews for King Jack
Lacking personality or insight, "King Jack" is a ho-hum tale of young aggression-been there, bruised that.
Thanks to a strongly rooted lead performance by Charlie Plummer as a 15-year-old small-town kid who's well on his way to a stint in juvenile detention, "King Jack" still strikes a resonant chord.
For everyone who ever had a close call as an adolescent and kept it from the grown-ups, "King Jack" will hit you where you live.
First-time writer-director Felix Thompson demonstrates good instincts for two of King Jack's standard three acts.
Writer-director Felix Thompson's first film is a sensitive and self-possessed debut that clocks in at 76 minutes and doesn't waste a single one of them.
Audience Reviews for King Jack
A superb and very gritty teenage coming of age drama that shows juvenile delinquency at its worst. Hard to watch at times but it shows perfectly the tough life that others experience and that, deep down, they may actually be a good person trying to do the right thing.
