Preview, Claire Danes and Jim Parsons are a couple wrestling with their son’s “Gender Expansive” tendencies in “A Kid Like Jake”

Danes is the concerned mother, Parsons is the more “accept whatever comes” father, a tolerant couple in the Big City looking at pricy private schools for a boy who likes to dress up like a ballerina, or princess.

Parsons runs up against his deeply-burned-in TV persona and the very out public gay one in playing this father who might be inclined to blame his ever-more-concerned-wife (Danes) for their boy’s effeminate behavior.

Octavia Spencer and Ann Dowd and Priyanka Chopra also star in this June 1 release, based on Daniel Pearle’s play.
