Stream THE BALLAD OF JACK & ROSE tonight for FREE on Hulu as part of their Sunday Movie Night. Starring Daniel Day Lewis and Katherine Keener, the film follows the story of a father and daughter living on an isolated island – once a thriving commune — who grapple with the limits of family and sexuality.
Jack lives on the site of his abandoned island commune with his 16-year-old daughter Rose. Jack has sheltered Rose from the influences of the outside world, but now Rose’s emerging womanhood poses troubling questions about the days ahead. A man who has lived a life motivated by environmentalism and other altruistic causes, Jack now rages at those who do not share his concerns, like developer Marty Rance, who is building a housing tract on the edge of his property. When Jack invites his girlfriend Kathleen and her sons Rodney and Thaddius to live with them, Rose feels betrayed and the situation quickly becomes precarious. Rose acts out wildly, creating chaos. As everything flies out of control, Jack finds himself trapped in an impossible place and is forced to take action.
