My Honest Disclosure First
I’m not going to lie, I watched this trailer on my baby’s birthday, she would have been 6 today and I’m a lot sensitive. I’m trying to remember to celebrate her life and not be sad, as I know she is in Heaven and much better off than if she’d have lived, but it’s tough. Really tough. If you, or someone you know is dealing with grief, I hope you’ll check out my series on it.
All of that was to say, while watching the trailer for the film I am extra sensitive… So it may not make you cry like it did me. I still stand by my thoughts below!
Back to The Movie!
Journal for Jordan is directed by the amazing Denzel Washington with a screenplay by Virgil Williams and stars Michael B Jordan. This film is based on the true story of First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, whom Michael B Jordan plays. When he was deployed to Iraq, he began keeping a journal of love and advice for his infant son.
At home, senior New York Times editor Dana Canedy (played by Chanté Adams) tells the story of her unlikely, life changing relationship with King and his enduring devotion to their child.
This beautiful, sweet story is the true account (I’m sure with some poetic license) of a rare love story that will remind us all of the importance of family.
The film is rated PG 13 and seems like something that is a perfect film for Denzel to direct, from what I’ve heard of him, his personal life and his philanthropic preferences. Given how fabulous Denzel is as an actor, I’m excited to see this film and what he does as a director!
Of course, it certainly does not hurt that Michael B Jordan is starring in it!
A Journal for Jordan will be in theaters December 25, 2021.
