[6.25/10] A Kid Like Jake (2019)

A Kid Like Jake (2019)

Quick Review: Exploring a deeply sensitive subject matter of gender identity in children, but doing it in a hesitant fashion, portraying the title character more as a figure rather than an actual person, and focusing more on his protective parents, "A Kid Like Jake" succeeds thanks to the sense of realism, some genuine emotion, and superb acting, but it's the tension between the adults that generates the biggest drama in the otherwise monotone story filled with mildly involving subplots.
