Little Men trailer

One film I was very disappointed to miss at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Little Men, the new drama by Ira Sachs. The drama might not sound all that exciting on paper — it concerns two young friends, Jake (Theo Taplitz) and Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose families begin feuding over a rent dispute — but the Keep the Lights On and Love Is Strange has demonstrated a gift for capturing the day-to-day realities of life in New York, and a particular understanding of the men (or in this case boys) navigating relationships with one another within it.

Fortunately, Little Men has turned out to be one of those Sundance charmers that hit theaters sooner rather than later. With a summer release date in sight, Magnolia Pictures has released the first Little Men trailer for your consideration. Also starring are Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle as Jake’s parents, and Paulina García as Tony’s mom.  Read More »
