Claire Danes on “A Kid Like Jake”

by Luca Celada June 19, 2018

As a queer artist – he was the first trans director on the Golden Globe-winning Transparent – Silas Howard brings a special outlook to A Kid Like Jake, the story of two young Brooklyn parents grappling with their kindergartner’s gender fluidity. The film stars Globe-winners Jim Parsons and Claire Danes as the two progressive parents who only have their child’s best interests at heart but who nevertheless contend with self-doubt and difficult choices as they navigate the first steps into school and societal judgment. The HFPA’s Mirai Konishi and Michele Manelis caught up with the four four-time Golden Globe-winning actress to ask her about the film.
