|Little Men (USA/Greece; 85
directed by: Ira Sachs
starring: Greg Kinnear; Rachel Ehle; Paulina Garcia; Alfred Molina; Theo Taplitz; Michael Barbieri; Talia Balsam
"I adored this film when we saw it at IFFB this year - and we are
actively pushing its two young stars Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri,
who just charmed the socks off of us in this beautiful little slice of
life coming of age story directed by the always reliable Ira Sachs.
Taplitz, who has a set of his own short films available on Vimeo, was
the youngest person ever to top the eCinemaOne Rising Stars Honors list
at 13. I cannot say enough about how much I loved this film."
