A Kid Like Jake

Jake is a normal little boy, right? He’s healthy and energetic. Everyone says he has an active imagination and thinks outside the box. He acts out stories with his friends like the princess, who doesn’t know he’s a princess. He’s developed a flamboyant sense of style using bright colors and creating a makeshift skirt from rolls of toilet papers. So, is Jake normal? The theme of identity is one explored from many angles in LGBT films. In Silas Howard’s A Kid Like Jake, the question is asked from the viewpoint of Jake’s parents.

Alex Wheeler (Claire Danes) is Jake’s mother. She loves her son, but her world starts spinning out of control getting word the school she wants Jake to attend is no longer in the district she just moved to with her husband Greg (Jim Parsons). Based on the play A Kid Like Jake, written and adapted by Daniel Pearle, we follow the couple as they come to grips with the fact their son is unique. The first thing you notice about A Kid Like Jake is that it’s really not about Jake. In the original off-Broadway play, Jake is never seen. In the film, you see him at the beginning and the end and with indirect glimpses throughout the film, but the focus is squarely on Alex and Greg. Pearle has created two very normal and identifiable leads in his story.
