Brad attaches himself to Jack, happily picking up the tab and driving him around Hollywood, taking him to high-powered industry parties in search of potential investors to fund his next film. At the party Jack is reminded of why he left Hollywood and we see his weakness for beautiful women come into play as he is entranced by the stunning Diana.
After a seemingly meaningful encounter, Jack steals himself away to attend an after party, which Brad has promised will be full of potential investors. Again tiring of the sycophantic financiers and clinging actresses, Jack is drawn to visit studio head Lorenzo, his old nemesis. Jack suggests one high-stakes hand of poker to settle the score and negotiates the conditions of his next film, whilst also bailing out young director Colin whom Jack saw was falling victim to Lorenzo’s old tricks. Jack wins the hand and reluctantly says goodbye to the sleeping Diana before leaving town forever.
Years later Jack’s son, also named Jack, arrives in LA for his directorial debut. Diana discovers her former lover’s son is in town through her daughter, Lily who invites him to stay. History seems to be repeating itself, as Jack begins his pursuit of Lily culminating in an illicit kiss in Lily’s bedroom interrupted when he is called away to be introduced to Lorenzo’s girlfriend Laura, who seduces him resulting in the pair getting caught having sex in a car. Jack is fired from the film, forcing him to return home with nothing to show for his trip but a hard lesson learned.
As the two men’s separate but similar life experiences unfold, years apart we see that even though time and culture changes, human nature does not and the same mistakes are repeated time and time again. 2 JACKS is fundamentally about how, sometimes, our romantic vision of the past can prevent us from living authentically in the present.
