Event Description

We are very excited to kick-off our 2018 Festival with the International Premiere of Silas Howard’s acclaimed Sundance drama, A Kid Like Jake, starring Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer and Priyanka Chopra.

In the latest from Silas Howard (By Hook or by Crook, Transparent), Claire Danes and Jim Parsons take on the role of loving parents who are navigating the private school system in New York City as well as wrestling with their own preconceived notions about their child’s gender identity.

While preparing applications to private schools for four-year-old Jake, Alex (Danes) and Greg (Parsons) are told to focus on what makes their child unique, which, according to their preschool advisor, Judy (Octavia Spencer), is Jake’s gender-expansive play. When Jake begins acting out in preschool, Alex and Greg must come together to lend support and not lose each other
in the process.

Featuring a stellar supporting cast that includes Amy Landecker, Ann Dowd and Priyanka Chopra, A Kid Like Jake brings humour and a whole lot of heart to this story of one family’s journey toward understanding and acceptance.
