Jake’s Closet

Written and Directed by Shelli Ryan, JAKE'S CLOSET delivers an elegant and unforgettably powerful, suspenseful film, seen through the eyes of a little boy coping with his family's breakup. With a remarkable performance by seven-year-old Anthony DeMarco, as "Jake", the film takes you on deeply moving journey, as Jake navigates the landscape of his parents' escalating divorce and finds himself haunted by something ominous lurking in his bedroom closet. The film features breakout performances from Brook Bloome (CSI Miami) and Sean Bridgers (HBO's Deadwood). The film made its festival debut at the 2007 Dances With Films Festival to rave reviews. It is being distributed by Vanguard Cinema and was recently endorsed by Dr. Warren Farrell, author of Father and Child Reunion.
