It was in the late '90s that New York Times reporter Dana Canedy (Chanté Adams) fell in love with divorced Army 1st Sergeant Charles King (Michael B. Jordan), and she was pregnant with their son Jordan when he was deployed to Iraq. King would maintain a journal of counsel for his son until the day he was lost in action-and Canedy would use it to guide the youngster (Jalon Christian) to manhood. Denzel Washington's heartfelt take on Canedy's memoir also stars Robert Wisdom, Tamara Tunie. 131 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
