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

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.

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

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.
