Greg Kinnear is one of the most versatile actors working in Hollywood today and he is back on the big screen this September with his new film Little Men.
Little Men is a family drama that marks the return of Ira Sachs to the director's chair; he has also teamed up with to pen the film's screenplay.
Sachs has brought us some wonderful relationship dramas such as Keep the Lights On and Married Life in recent years and Little Men is his first film since Love Is Strange last year.
The brand new trailer for the film has been released and we have it for you to take a look at:
The cast is a great mix of established stars such as Kinnear, Jennifer Ehle, Alfred Molina, and Yolanda Ross. But we will also be introduced to the acting talents of Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri as they both make their feature film debuts in the roles of Jake and Tony.
When 13-year-old Jake's (Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father's old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Garcia), a dressmaker from Chile, runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake's parents Brian (Kinnear) and Kathy (Ehle) - one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist - ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. For Leonor, the proposed new 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. Jake aspires to be an artist, while Tony wants to be an actor, and they have dreams of going to the same prestigious arts high school together. But the children can't avoid the problems of their parents forever, and soon enough, the adult conflict intrudes upon the borders of their friendship.
When it comes to telling stories about people and relationships, there is no one better than Sachs. Love Is Strange was one of my favourite films of last year and I cannot wait to see what he delivers with Little Me.
Little Men is released 23rd September.
