Feature Film Jack

The biopic Jack recounts Layton’s relationship with MP and wife Olivia Chow, his early days in Toronto municipal politics and his emergence onto the national stage — leading to the NDP's impressive federal election campaign in 2011 and his death from cancer just weeks later. A large part of the film centres in on Layton's personal life and his relationship with wife Olivia Chow, played by CBC Radio host Sook-Yin Lee. Actor Rick Roberts portrays Layton. “Our story was quite typically Canadian,” Chow, an NDP MP, told CBC News.
