A JOURNAL FOR JORDAN
Denzel Washington is brilliant as the director of A Journal for Jordan. It will make all single viewers green with envy with the relationship between Charles (Michael B. Jordan) and Dana (Chante Adams). It’s a romantic love story, but it also concentrates heavily on the sacrifices our military has to make when deployed overseas and the sacrifices of loved ones left back home as well. For example, when Dana gives birth to the couple’s son, Jordan, Charles is in the Middle East with no idea he will be allowed to come home.
