Jack (Charlie Plummer) is a scrappy 15-year-old kid stuck in a small, run-down town. He's got more problems than he can handle: an escalating feud with a violent older bully, a crush on a neighborhood girl, and having to go to summer school again. So when his runty younger cousin (Cory Nichols) comes to stay for the weekend, the last thing Jack wants to do is look after him - but no one cares what Jack wants.
Called "a stylish, sensitive coming-of-ager" by Variety and winner of the Independent Spirit Awards "Someone To Watch" honor for director Felix Thompson, KING JACK is a challenging and tender story of friendship, struggle, and finding happiness in rough surroundings.
