“My Boy Jack” is a 2007 television drama based on David Haig's play of the same name. Despite his weak eyesight, Rudyard Kipling's son Jack was determined to serve in the military during World War I. Unlike many parents, Kipling was adamant that his son have the opportunity to see action and uphold the values that were a constant motif in his writing. It was filmed in August 2007, with Haig as Rudyard Kipling and Daniel Radcliffe as Jack Kipling. It does not include act three of the play, which extended to the 1920s and 1930s. Instead it ends with Kipling reading the poem “My Boy Jack”. The American television premiere was April 20, 2008 on PBS. Download “My Boy Jack” right now!

Starts strong and ends weak04 March 2011

The film presents the realities of war without sentiment, and also does justice to the reputation and work of Kipling. Excellent viewing.





very good film11 January 2010

a very good film about ww1 touching in parts





Touching film19 October 2009

Follows Kipling's change of heart towards WW1, from drum-banging propagandist to regret-laden bereaved parent.

The film is probably more like a study of the British national mood at the time, measured by Rudyard Kipling.
