A streetwise teenage runaway is on the lam from her probation officer. Her name is Jacquelyn, but if you call her anything but Jack, she'll cut you. Needing to lay low, earn money, and gain adequate stability to rescue her 11-year-old sister Coke from foster care, Jack cons her way into a suburban home as live-in helper for their autistic 11-year-old daughter, Glory. Much to her surprise, Jack has a unique ability to connect with the nonverbal little girl. As she positively impacts Glory, the family impacts Jack. Particularly Kay, Glory's mother. As these two scrappy survivors find an affinity with each other, Kay finds in Jack a daughter she can talk to. When romantic sparks fly between Jack and Robert, Glory's 17-year-old brother, we see a group of wounded people poignantly and surprisingly begin to heal each other-just a little bit. But the law catches up, the truth comes out, and Jack is forced to make a choice-to save her own hide, or save someone else. Written by Dan Baptist

A must watch drama-family movie!
28 January 2018 | by christosxenSee all my reviews

I have seen many kinds of these films and I have to say that this film is a must watch!

First of all there is a well-made plot story with a family who wants someone to keep their autistic child (babysitting) and help him improve in his life (school,family relationships). After a lot they found one girl (18 years old) named Jack(Jacqueline) who had a criminal record and tried to trick them to get the job cause she wanted to take the custody of her little sister which was in reformatory for minors.

About the characters: I have to say the cast is awesome! The two stars of the film AnnaSophia Robb and Taylor Richardson have the talent despite their age and I believe they also show it in this movie. Personaly I love AnnaSophia Robb I have seen every movie of her and I have to say that is a very beautiful and talented actress.

I promise you that this movie will not disappoint you. But you will have to be ready about the strong feelings and the dramatic atmosphere that will make you cry sometimes but this is the point of this film to make you Feel!

Have a nice time!!!
