Directed by Denzel Washington and starring Michael B. Jordan with a screenplay by Virgil Williams, A Journal For Jordan is based on the true story of First Sergeant Charles Monroe King (Jordan), 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 (Chanté Adams) 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.

Critics Consensus: A Journal for Jordan's affecting fact-based story stumbles onscreen thanks to Denzel Washington's undistinguished direction and overly sentimental approach.

13+ COMMON SENSE

Emotional memoir doesn't translate to film; sex, war scenes.
