A Journal for Jordan (2021)

Watch A Journal for Jordan Full Movie Online

Based on the true story of First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, a soldier deployed to Iraq begins to keep a journal of love and advice for his infant son. Back at home, senior New York Times editor Dana Canedy revisits the story of her unlikely, life-altering relationship with King and his enduring devotion to her and their child.

Review (Warning: Spoilers):

This movie was really enjoyable if you don’t go into it with your mind made up about what it should be. Reading other reviews, I can understand their harsh sentiments but I don’t think the movie deserves a 1 star rating by any means. The actors have great on-screen chemistry and I enjoyed seeing that play out throughout the film. I do agree that for the film to be named what it is, there wasn’t a ton of focus on the journal and why Jordan might need certain lessons from the book (there is only one scene from what I can recall).

For me it was reminiscent of those classic black love movies from the 90’s and I have been missing that lately from cinema. This was certainly not the worst or best movie of the year but it is a nice escape from everything going on in the world right now. Definitely a movie for a GNO or maybe date night if your man doesn’t mind you gawking over MBJ 🙂
