A first official look at A Kid Like Jake, the upcoming drama movie directed by Daniel Pearle based on a script by Daniel Pearle and starring Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Leo James Davis, Octavia Spencer, Priyanka Chopra, Ann Dowd, Amy Landecker, Julia Chan, and Cindy Cheung:
“On the eve of the admissions cycle for New York City kindergartens, Alex and Greg Wheeler have high hopes for their son, Jake, a bright and precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to GI Joe. Aware they can’t afford private school tuition, Judy, the director of Jake’s preschool, encourages them to accentuate Jake’s ‘gender variant’ expression to help him stand out and try and get a scholarship. As Alex and Greg navigate their roles as parents, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own concerns about what’s best for Jake, and each other.”
Now that’s something original for once. Possibly too controversial for mainstream moviegoers though… Anyway, I’ll see it!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
