This is not “Rain Man”; it's better.
The story moves along in fairly predictable beats, including the inevitable denouement in which Jack's deception is exposed. But it's effective nonetheless, thanks to the authentic-feeling depiction of the physical and emotional toll of caring for an autistic child.
It's rare that a drama shows such specificity with respect to the experience of coping with autism, and that sensitivity goes a long way.
The New York Times
Jack of the Red Hearts is so good-hearted it doesn't want to leave audiences without a glimmer a hope.
There's a poignant, powerful story lurking at the edges of Jack of the Red Hearts but, as is, the film proves a strained, implausible family drama.
