On TV Tonight: Watch Carey Mulligan in an encore presentation of "My Boy Jack" on PBS' Masterpiece

Tonight watch an encore presentation of My Boy Jack, a period war drama starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter movies), Kim Catrall (Sex and the City TV series and movies), David Haigh, and Oscar nominated actress Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go, An Education, and Pride & Prejudice). The main cast portrayed a family in 1914 England.

Watch this tonight on PBS' Masterpiece. Check your local listings for scheduled air times.

Don't miss this, if you haven't seen this period drama, great performances from the main cast (Who knew Harry Potter, Samantha from S&TC, and Kitty Bennet from P&P were all in this and playing a family? Great casting!) too. This was  one of the movies featured in my Movie Recommendations: Other TV & Films starring P&P actors (part 2).

My Boy Jack
(encore presentation)
In 1914 England, patriotism is high in the early days of WWI, and writer Rudyard Kipling (David Haigh) is one of its most eloquent and passionate voices. John "Jack," (Daniel Radcliffe), Kipling's only son, is underage, hopelessly myopic, and eager to join the war effort. Kipling's outspoken American wife Carrie (Kim Cattrall) remains more sanguine on the course of the war, and the fate of her family. Also features Carey Mulligan as Jack's sister Elsie. My Boy Jack, based on a true story, tells of a nation at war, and offers an intimate portrait of one family's complex and divided experience in it.
