One of the best documentaries
15 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

The documentary little man is one of the best documentaries ever made. The documentary follows the life of Nicole and Gwen, a lesbian couple who hires a surrogate to have their second child. The child, Nicholas, is born three months early, and the film follows his struggle to survive against all odds. The film is truly touching. It gives you keen insight into both what the child is going through and what the parents go through. It is truly an incredible film with how in-depth it is into the proceedings that are taken to keep Nicholas alive and the story in it all. I won't ruin the film for anyone. It will bring tears to your eyes and make you believe how precious life is.

5/5 stars.
