Brian (Greg Kinnear) is a struggling New York actor, his wife Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) is the breadwinner, and they have a sensitive teenage son, Jake (Theo Taplitz). When Brian’s dad dies, the family’s money worries appear to be over: he has left Brian property in fast-gentrifying Brooklyn. But it comes with a sitting tenant, Leonor (Paulina García), who has been there for years. Brian – liberal, well-meaning, self-pitying – must steel himself for a difficult conversation about money. And then he realises his lonely son has become best friends with Leonor’s son Tony (Michael Barbieri). From Ira Sachs, who directed Love Is Strange, Little Men is an intelligent, perceptive film the Guardian calls “complex and beautifully acted… such a treat.”
