Ira Sachs, 2016 85 minutes Greg Kinnaer, Paulina García, Jennifer Ehle, Alfred Molina, Theo Taplitz Greece, Brazil, USA English, Spanish 18 May 2017 Dutch

Intimate drama by Ira Sachs (LOVE IS STRANGE) about two parents navigating an uneasy situation that affects their son’s one real friendship.

Jake is a quiet, sensitive middle schooler with dreams of being an artist. He meets the affably brash Tony at his grandfather's funeral, and the unlikely pair soon hit it off. The budding friendship is put at risk, however, when a rent dispute between Jake's parents, Brian and Kathy, and Tony's mother, Leonor, threatens to become contentious.

LITTLE MEN is a critical yet empathetic look at the dangers of gentrification. Ira Sachs accentuates the natural vibrancy of Brooklyn and brings out the best in his actors.

Hollywood Reporter - "A deceptively small movie that sneaks up and slays you with its emotional authenticity."

IndieWire - "Ira Sachs' latest is that rarest of beasts: a truly hopeful heartbreaker."
