Matching Jack

Australia/English (102 mins)

Canadian Premiere! Life seems idyllic for Marisa and her son, Jack, until Jack ends up in hospital, unexpectedly diagnosed with leukemia. With neither Marisa, nor her philandering husband, David, being a bone marrow match, Marisa makes a desperate decision – she’ll seek out all the women with whom David has had affairs throughout the years, hoping one of them had a child who’s a match for Jack. Meanwhile, Jack befriends Finn, a young Irish boy who’s been travelling the world with his father, Connor. Marisa’s initial disdain for Connor turns to affection, as both parents try to deal with their sons' illnesses.

Brimming with wonderful performances from Jacinda Barrett (The Last Kiss), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In), and the amazing James Nesbitt (star of Peter Jackson’s upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Matching Jack beautifully captures the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit.
