Everything s jake movie trailer
Everything's Jake is a 2000 drama film distributed by Warner Bros. The movie marks the feature writing and directorial debut of Matthew Miele, along with his producing/writing partner, Chris Fetchko. Aside from the film title referring to the main character, it is also a slang expression from the Roaring Twenties in the United States, meaning "everything is good order".
Within the most storied city in the world lives Jake (Ernie Hudson), a homeless man who calls all of Manhattan his home. Jake discovers Cameron (Graeme Malcolm), a man down on his luck and sleeping in a tree in Central Park.
Taking Cameron under his wing, Jake teaches him how to survive on the streets. Jake's friendship with Cameron winds up threatening Jake's way of life, a life no one ever thought could possibly exist, lived with heart and spirit, and a charming embrace of the city. In this heartwarming and beautifully-shot film, homelessness is shown in a new light, illustrated with a stellar performance by Ernie Hudson, alongside a number of star-studded cameos.
