JACK OF THE RED HEARTS

A teenage con artist tricks a desperate mother into hiring her as a live-in companion for her autistic daughter. —IMDB

What a surprise this little gem is. I knew nothing about it except for the description above from IMDB. When it started, I wondered what I was in for — the acting seemed a touch to forced and the script a bit cliched. But after a few minutes, I was totally engrossed. Taylor Richardson, who plays the autistic Glory is absolutely outstanding and Anna Sophia Robb, who plays Jack/Donna carries the movie with her strong acting abilities. This movie has real heart. It was moving and, from what I can tell, portrays the challenges of caring for an autistic child. Check it out.
