Film review: ‘King Jack’ ★★★★

The name Felix Thompson is to be added to lists of up-and-coming directors to keep an eye on. His first feature, King Jack took home the audience award at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and it’s easy to see why. Kicking the tyres of a familiar teenage coming-of-age tale, Thompson’s strikingly assured and unflinching debut pumps new life into a well-trodden genre.

King Jack opens in selected UK cinemas on 26th February – seek it out but read the full review here at CineVue first!
