Story


"Two Jacks" is a comical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's short story Two Hussars, comparing the generational change from father to son within the same business.

The fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, with romance and glamor, comes alive in "Two Jacks"; a now-and-then look at the renowned way of living. Legendary film director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston), notorious gambler and womanizer, returns to the LA scene to raise money for his next feature film. Back in LA, Jack walks himself into an eventful night. Doing what he does best, Jack seduces the stunning Diana (Sienna Miller), attends some wild industry parties, and narrowly escapes a brush with the law, all before playing a high-stakes poker game at dawn.

As years pass, Jack Hussar Jr. (Jack Huston) later arrives in Hollywood to follow his father's career path for his directorial debut. Soon after arriving, Diana (now played by Jacqueline Bisset) notices her daughter falling for her former lover's son. Within this film we see the struggle of a son trying to step out of his father's Hollywood shadow.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film is not entirely convincing in its mirroring of Tolstoy's story about collapsing values, it's a reasonably entertaining portrait of disreputable Tinseltown types that should at least provide some knowing chuckles for insiders..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..false gravity weighs down 2 Jacks, a father-son drama less interested in exploring familial relations than in tut-tutting the millennials..”
by Inkoo Kang [Village Voice]
