A Kid Like Jake

Rated R • 89 minutes

Brooklyn parents Alex (Claire Danes) and Greg (Jim Parsons) have a precocious four-year-old who just happens to prefer princesses to toy cars and skirts to jeans. Jake's "gender expansive" behavior—as local preschool director Judy (Octavia Spencer) dubs it—is no big deal to Alex and Greg. Or so it seems, until the process of navigating New York City's hyper-competitive private school system opens up a parental quagmire: could Jake's gender nonconformity be just the thing that gives their child an edge in the admissions game?
