A Journal for Jordan


A Journal for Jordan
Based on the true story of First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, a soldier deployed to Iraq who begins to keep a journal of love and advice for his infant son. Back at home, senior New York Times editor Dana Canedy revisits the story of her unlikely, life-altering relationship with King and his enduring devotion to her and their child. A sweeping account of a once-in-a-lifetime love, the film is a powerful reminder of the importance of family.

Tomatometer quote iconA Journal for Jordan’s affecting fact-based story stumbles onscreen thanks to Denzel Washington’s undistinguished direction and overly sentimental approach.

Sandie Angulo Chen quote iconEmotional memoir doesn't translate to film; sex, war scenes.
