My Boy Jack

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe

At age seventeen, Rudyard Kipling's son, like most of his generation, is swept up in the enthusiasm to fight the Germans in World War I. Jack is cripplingly, short-sighted, and the army has rejected him twice. Kipling persuades Lord Roberts to grant Jack a commission in the Irish Guards. After Jack is declared missing in action, Kipling and his wife search for him while struggling to deal with their feelings over Jack's entrance into the army.
