A Kid Like Jake

On the eve of the admissions cycle for New York City kindergartens and aware they can’t afford private school tuition, Judy (Octavia Spencer), the director of Jake’s preschool, encourages them to accentuate Jake’s “gender variant” expression to help him stand out and try and get a scholarship.
