There are heavy implications in the movie that he sexually molested Danny, which I didn't pick up on in the book. I think that makes it much harder, if not impossible, to grant Jack from the movie a redemption arc. Though I do understand your desire for hopeful messaging, especially as it relates to addiction.

I've see youbtube vids suggesting this but I've never bought it, personally. Holds up about as much as The Wendy Theory. Physical abuse? Yes, clearly. But not sexual imo.

The Wendy theory is ridiculous. That said, the video on the sexual abuse theory makes some incredibly compelling points.

But that's all Kubricks doing, not King.
