Married couple Alex (Claire Danes) and Greg (Jim Parsons) are under a lot of pressure to find a kindergarten in Brooklyn that would be the best fit for their 4-year-old son Jake. Jake is sensitive and introverted and prefers to play with dolls rather than toy cars, and his parents’ main concern is protecting him from being hurt or ridiculed. But how can they do what is best for Jake when they aren’t able to agree on what that is? Written by Daniel Pearle, who adapted his own play, A KID LIKE JAKE is a touching study of parenthood and a poignant exploration of family dynamics.

This screening is co-presented by Java Love.

Q&A with director Silas Howard, actor Leo James Davis, and writer Daniel Pearle follows the screening.
