Where to watch

Movie Info

Jack Maldonado is a hot-blooded, ambitious young man who, fueled by misguided nostalgia, buys a small apartment building in the Bronx and moves his boisterous family into the apartments to live rent-free. His parents, Carlos and Martha, sister Nadia, brother Richie and his wife Rosa, Grandmother aka Abuela and cousins Hector and Manny, all converge under one roof. Tension quickly builds as Jack imposes his views on everyone around him, including his fiancée, Lily. All the while, he hides the fact that his corner store is a front for selling marijuana, but soon has to deal with new unwanted competition. It's only a matter of time before Jack's family and 'business' lives collide in tragic fashion.

Critic Reviews for The House That Jack Built

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4)

  • The personality flaws of the characters and the dysfunctions of the household are instantly recognizable from this very capable cast, yet they never come off as cliché.

    Dec 11, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The movie overflows with pungent street flavor: yelling in stairwells, confrontations, threats, countless expletives and the occasional family gathering.

    Nov 5, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Using Bronx locations and a strong cast of Caribbean-Latino actors, director Henry Barrial constructs a convincing portrait of a neighborhood and its Nuyorican culture.

    Oct 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The House That Jack Built isn't quite the arresting and innovative drama it could be, but Barrial's film is definitely worth a look.
