Jack gained 30 pounds for his unusually subdued role as a regular Brooklyn schlub who happens also to be an accomplished mob killer, finding himself well out of his depth amid the web of family double-crosses that ensue when he falls for a mysterious West Coast beauty (Kathleen Turner). Nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director (John Huston).

About The Film Club
Join us for The Music Hall Film Club, our newest social group! Over the course of six months, we’ll be focusing on a particular outstanding director, genre, or artist. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, we’ll show a film followed by a lively, participatory discussion. Curators Bill and Stella Pence, founders of the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado and the Music Hall’s Telluride by the Sea Film Festival, have chosen Jack! for the second half of the 2016 season! Trevor Bartlett, cinema aficionado, will be our host and guide.
A must for all Telluride lovers, film discussion buffs, and all-around cinephiles!
