Storyline

A Brooklyn couple has always known that their four-year-old son is more interested in fairy tale princesses than toy cars. But when his preschool director points out that his gender-nonconforming play may be more than a phase, the couple is forced to rethink their roles as parents and spouses. Written by A Kid Like Jake

Great cast but weak storytelling weird editing
5 October 2018 | by firtiSee all my reviews

Well cast is great yes jake is almost invisible but i think the guilt for this result is a weak screenplay and weak directing editing there are a lot of meaningless scenes does not add anything to the movie wish it would be a better film as it is a good topic and good actors
