American Heart is a 1992 film directed by Martin Bell that was nominated for the Independent Spirit Awards. Jack Kelson (Jeff Bridges) has just left jail after serving his sentence for a series of bank robberies. Almost immediately after his release, Jack is cornered by his now teenage son Nick (Edward Furlong), whom Jack essentially abandoned since his imprisonment. Jack wants more than anything to live a normal life beginning with a fresh start, and has even considered moving to Alaska to do so. Nick wants more than anything to be reunited with his father and eagerly chases after Jack. Nick begs to live with his father, and when Jack agrees to rent a room in a hotel residence with his son. To pay rent, Jack works at a bank cleaning windows, and Nick as a paper delivery boy. Slowly but surely, the two begin to develop the loving father-son relationship that they once had. This 1992 film illustrates the slowly developing relationship between long lost father and son and the problems they encounter that will test their relationship.
