A rediscovered classic from director Ken Loach (‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley,’ ‘Kes’) and one of the inspirations for Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ ‘Black Jack’ is a dark, complex adventure film set in the 18th century and based on Leon Garfield’s novel for children. When French thief “Black Jack” kidnaps young Tolly, a journey begins that includes traveling fairs, murder, and the rescue of a young girl from a private insane asylum. While shot primarily in 16mm and on a modest budget on location in Yorkshire, Chris Menges’ photography, the enchanting performances by its young cast, and Loach’s gentle, observational style all shine through.
