Little Men (Ira Sachs | USA | 85 min.)
When Jake's grandfather dies, his family moves into his father's old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony, whose single mother runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake's parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) -- one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist -- ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. For Leonor, the proposed rent is untenable, and a feud ignites between the adults. At first, Jake and Tony don't seem to notice; the two boys, so different on the surface, begin to develop a formative kinship as they discover the pleasures of being young in Brooklyn. But the children can't avoid the problems of their parents and the conflict intrudes upon the borders of their friendship. Directed by Ira Sachs with his trademark humanism and insight, LITTLE MEN highlights the NYC landscape with a story of life-defining friendships in the midst of familial turmoil.
