Not the movie I expected but still enjoyed every second of it. (by sheysii)
I'm not gonna lie people, I started to watch because of Jim Parsons. And the movie itself is a drama that has family in it so it's literally what I'd love to watch. At the start of the film, I didn't know why it was not cheerish at all. You get to understand why the movie has a low vibe but by the time you get it, it's unfortunately too too late. First of all they don't seem to be parents who can't think outside of the box. So you're like "Why she just can't get it?". This movie does not show parents who accept their child's differences and <more>
neither the other way. Without the last 1 minute of the movie, it's all in the middle.and I personally don't like it at all. This 6 only goes for Jim Parsons.
Greg and Alex Wheeler Jim Parsons & Claire Danes make an amazing performance about their son Jake Leo James Davis who is a young 5 year old who dresses up as a girl and likes most girly things. They show the real roles of how it can be hard trying to figure out how to approach the subject with their son. On Jake's 5th birthday his friend Sanjay Rhys Bhatia pushes another kids for calling Jake a fag. This movie in my honest opinion is a great, and thought provoking.
REALLY GOOD (by ishuman)
A quite movie telling an important story. Great cast, good acting. Worthy of seeing twice.
Great story (by samantha-horn2010)
I honestly thought this was a great story on a very sensitive subject for some. I like how they make the story about the parents and how they achieve to be on good terms on how there son acts. The mother can't seem to come to terms or what to believe her son is transgender.For the other reviewers that say they need more of the boy in the film, because it says his name in the title. The movie IS about him just in a 3rd person and as a background character. Jake in my eyes is the star of this movie Well done
Incredible Acting and True to life Dialogue (by ljbimoore-84916)
I loved this film. It offers no answers, just a discussion and a snapshot of what life for the parents of a non-gender-conforming child must be like. Both parents and all the adults in Jake's life actually are trying their hardest to do what is best for him. They all clearly love him and want him to be happy.The dialogue in this film is perfect, everything feels natural and organic; it's as though, you're truly watching these moments unfold on a hidden camera. The scenes are acted beautifully, with truth and authenticity.Those reviewers claiming that Jim Parsons is limited in <more>
his ability to play a straight character are showing their own bias. This character is specifically shown as a gentle man, one who does not himself conform to some "macho" stereotype. He plays the character wonderfully with subtlety and ease. I also felt the chemistry between him and Claire Danes was great. It is established very early on how much they love each other and what great friends they are as well; which becomes increasingly important as you watch them struggle with the challenges the situation brings to their marriage. I was genuinely routing for them.I only took one star off because there is a bit of odd editing in the first 15-20 minutes of the film. But that resolves itself and the pacing becomes another helpful device in this incredibly well told story.I highly recommend this film!!
Claire Danes and Jim Parsons give some impassioned performances in this tale about the parents, teachers and other adults in the orbit of a 4 year-old who exhibits some indication of gender non-conformity which morphs into something slightly more violent after some bullying and attempts to set boundaries. Octavia Spencer, Priyanka Chopra and Ann Dowd comprise the strong supporting cast. Everyone is trying to do their best in a sensitive situation. That's where the tension builds.This movie isn't so much about clear-cut solutions, but more about how painful it is to feel the burden of <more>
doing what's considered right... and everyone has a different idea of exactly what that is. Plus each character has stresses which complicates their perceptions.Ultimately, being nurturing, supportive and patient seems to be the bow tied on this brief interlude. But, I'd say, this movie is less about concrete answers and more about the situation, capped with some gut-wrenching dramatic presentation.
Being a parent is MAD HARD! A mini version of yourself is the universes response to your parent saying, wait til your child acts just like you. But when you birth a son, and that son wants to wear dresses and be the princess during pretend time, what do you do? This movie follows two parents that has this reality thrust in their face as they attempt to enroll their son in a good school. Whether you are in denial or in search of guidance, one thing is a bonafide fact, their son likes to dress as a girl. I get why the movie was given such a low score. It pushes people past their comfort zones. <more>
I certainly felt extremely uncomfortable with how the parents were handling or not the situation. The lack of discussing it, denial, making excuses, turning a blind eye, and worse, ignoring it. Whatever you feel or felt, it is a child. A four year old child You want to be accepting, but you also want your boy to be a boy and dress and "act like" a boy. But, in today's society of putting it all out there, how do you deal with such a heavy load? One parent pissed me off to no end. All I wanted to do was smash their face in. The other parent irked me for not stepping up. Certain times are not meant to be passive moments. So, what do you do? I rated the movie an 8 because it pushed you. It makes you think, as a parent, what would I do? The movie makes you look at children and have a bit more compassion. It wasn't a bad movie at all.
I really thought Clare Danes and Jim Parsons nailed their performances. Ms Danes completely and totally nailed the love/fear/guilt that inherent in real parenthood yet rarely shown onscreen. I'll agree that more Jake would have been interesting, but the real premise of the film is the parents' roles & reactions so I didn't see the child's smaller presence in the film as an issue at all.We need more films like this, more about the parents of transgender kids. We need more stories that show the realness of parenting in many difficult situations. All too often what we see in <more>
film, or in real life, is a glossed over impression of parenting. Ms Danes' performance really knocked this movie out of the park for this Mom.
