“A Journal for Jordan” is based on a true story about First Sargent Charles Monroe King. Charles is one of many soldiers who deployed to Iraq after 911. After his son, Jordan was born Charles kept a Journal of his life, love and advise for Jordan to one day read. The movie revisits the relationship, love and devotion that Charles had for New York Times Editor Dana Canedy (Chante Adams), the mother of his child.
This is a moving and emotional story, but of course it would be considering the subject matter. These types of stories are never easy to tell, but Denzel Washington directs this adaptation of the screenplay with kindness, care and respect.
This is the type of movie that goes back and forth over the course of about 18 years.
A number of paid critics were a bit harsh on their rating, but I disagree with them.
“A Journal for Jordan” is worth seeing and is only available in the Theaters.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!!
