Holly Adams in Dear Jack

Dear Jack

2009 NR

This gripping documentary chronicles the life-and-death struggle of Andrew McMahon, vocalist for Los Angeles rock band Jack's Mannequin, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005 just as he completed work on the group's first album. Lensed by McMahon himself as he undergoes painful therapies to combat the disease, this deeply personal film is a tribute to both the resilience of the human spirit and the power of music to keep hope alive.
