Storyline

A streetwise teenage runaway is on the lam from her probation officer. Her name is Jacquelyn, but if you call her anything but Jack, she'll cut you. Needing to lay low, earn money, and gain adequate stability to rescue her 11-year-old sister Coke from foster care, Jack cons her way into a suburban home as live-in helper for their autistic 11-year-old daughter, Glory. Much to her surprise, Jack has a unique ability to connect with the nonverbal little girl. As she positively impacts Glory, the family impacts Jack. Particularly Kay, Glory's mother. As these two scrappy survivors find an affinity with each other, Kay finds in Jack a daughter she can talk to. When romantic sparks fly between Jack and Robert, Glory's 17-year-old brother, we see a group of wounded people poignantly and surprisingly begin to heal each other-just a little bit. But the law catches up, the truth comes out, and Jack is forced to make a choice-to save her own hide, or save someone else. Written by Dan Baptist

Jack of the Red hearts: An OK Movie.
10 November 2017 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

A stray girl and an autistic child: I'm sure most of you can figure out what kind of film this is. But doesn't matter: what matters is only how convincing is the story, how endearing are the characters and how much, in the end, you'll care for their destiny...

And, according to me, this movie is OK: the story flows with a good narrative balance, AnnaSophia Robb will surely charm you, Scott Cohen will show what a gifted musician he is, by the way, and everything will go fine, from the beginning to the end.

I'm not inclined to give it more than a 7 (out of ten) only because I'm old and I have already watched too many movies. But besides that, this is a quality film and a very good cast.
