Claire Danes & Jim Parsons are Parents in Trailer for 'A Kid Like Jake'
"You want him to be somewhere he can thrive, right?" IFC Films has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama titled A Kid Like Jake, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Adapted from Daniel Pearle's play, described as a "timely, honest, emotionally rich look at 21st-century parenting." Claire Danes and Jim Parsons star as parents of a precocious, creative young child named Jake, played by Leo James Davis. As they attempt to challenge the private school world in New York City, they must determine whether their son's "gender nonconformity" is something that matters, can help them, or make matters even worse. The cast includes Octavia Spencer, Priyanka Chopra, Amy Landecker, and Ann Dowd. I heard some great things about this at Sundance, and the trailer looks solid. Looking forward to it. ›››
