The Press Reviews

  • [A] simply lovely comedy-drama. Full Review

  • Silas Howard’s new film is nothing if not well-attuned to the difference between the purity of sharing the right values and the messiness of actually living with them. Full Review

  • The movie doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere until it explodes, and the dazzling fireworks don’t quite offset its long, seemingly aimless fuse. Full Review

  • "A Kid Like Jake" is humane, compassionate and strangely detached, almost to the point of inconsequentiality. Full Review

  • This is not a film about falling apart, but all the conversations and compromises that hold things together. Full Review
