Little Men

USA 2016 | 85 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

After Jake's grandfather passes away, his parents decide to move to the family's old home in Brooklyn. The introverted and creative boy becomes friends with the more outgoing Tony, whose mother manages a dress shop downstairs. As their friendship grows, their parents start quarreling over the rent, and the boys decide to protest by giving them the silent treatment. Little Men is the seventh feature film by Ira Sach, the director of Keep the Lights On (2012) and Love is Strange (2014). This touching film premiered at Sundance to great critical acclaim, winning five stars in Screen International, Guardian and Hollywood Reporter, where Sachs was called "a master of expressive understatement."
