Little Men

Ira Sachs, 85 Minutes

| NewFest at The Center Presents |

Screening, Talkback and Reception with director Ira Sachs and co-writer Mauricio Zacharias

“Achingly humane. Deeply moving. The cumulative effect is heart-rending.” – Nigel Smith, The Guardian

“Beautiful. Ranks among Ira Sachs’ best films. The performances are impeccable.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

Much like Love Is Strange, director Ira Sachs’s Little Men captures the modern New York City landscape with a tender and intelligent relationship portrait, this time through the life-defining friendship of two teens caught in the middle of familial tumult. When his grandfather dies, 13-year-old Jake (Theo Taplitz) moves with his family from Manhattan back into his father’s old Brooklyn home, where he meets Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia) runs a dress shop downstairs. Soon, Jake’s parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) ask Leonor to sign another, more expensive lease for the store, which kindles a feud between the adults. The friendship struck by Jake and Tony forms the heart of the film, with Sachs observing this connection with humanism and insight to ultimately craft a timely, sophisticated story of displacement and class.
