After Jake's grandfather passes away, his parents (Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle) 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 (Paulina Garcia) 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 last year at Sundance to great critical acclaim, winning five stars in Screen Magazine, the Guardian and Hollywood Reporter, where Sachs was called "a master of expressive understatement."
