On November 3rd, Sire Records will release the DVD of Dear Jack – a deeply personal documentary made by Jack’s Mannequin frontman Andrew McMahon that chronicles the year that McMahon, then 22, spent battling acute lymphoma leukemia while trying to release Jack’s Mannequin’s 2005 debut album Everything in Transit.
Dear Jack, directed by Corey Moss and Josh Morrisroe, is a breathtakingly emotional film as well as a testament to family, friends and, perhaps more than anyone will ever know, a love of making music.
The DVD of Dear Jack is available for pre-order from Jack’s Mannequin’s website, JacksMannequin.com now. Those who pre-order will get access to a newly recorded version of “Swim (Music Box)” and an autographed movie poster.
Three theatrical screenings of Dear Jack will also be held for fans and press in October. The film will also be shown at the Landmark Theater in Chicago on October 8th, the IFC Theater in New York City on October 22nd, and a Theater location yet to be confirmed in Los Angeles on October 28th. More details will be released about these events on JacksMannequin.com. Watch the trailer below:
