JOSIE & JACK. This raw and powerful drama from Lancaster (Chuck, Everwood) is based on Kelly Braffet’s acclaimed book of the same name. The tense plot follows brother and sister duo Josie (Olivia DeJonge – Stray Dolls, The Society) and Jack (Alex Neustaedter, Colony, American Woman) Raeburn, who are raised by their tough father (William Fichtner – 12 Strong, Prison Break), a physics professor at a local university.
The two teens are isolated in a decrepit mansion in rural Pennsylvania, with only each other to depend on, but, following an argument with their father the two flee and try to make a life for themselves in New York. However, with Jack’s behaviour becoming increasingly temperamental, Josie must decide between her loyalty to her brother and breaking free.
