The story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son, A Kid Like Jake is a study of intimacy and parenthood and the fantasies that accompany both.

When first reviewed in Time Out (New York) upon its June 2013 premiere: “A Kid Like Jake is a searching, keenly perceptive look at how the nature-versus-nurture question can play out on the front lines of tolerance today.” New York Magazine said, “Daniel Pearle’s polished new framed… is full of perceptive details about the intense world of affluent parenting, where every child is gifted and the struggle for dominance begins at home.
