This film has a beautiful look to it, and the script is witty, but the
best part is the cast. They are charming and engaging. If you have a
chance to see it, don't miss this film.
It's the story of a little person whose life is crumbling around him until he finally decides to take a bold chance to turn his fate around. As a New York actor constantly being cast as an elf, leprechaun, or oompa loompa; when he hears of a Wizard of Oz remake, he decides to audition for the role of the Tin Man. Naturally he meets with resistance and hilarity ensues.
Surrounded by a quirky bunch of friends and family, he makes his way through this ordeal by going through a great loss, brotherly conflict, unrequited love, and jealous competition. This film is a winner.
It tough to make it as an actor. Herman (Aaron Beelner) is at a cross roads, he is struggling to become an actor and play the leading roles he wants. An unexpected event puts Herman at a cross roads. At this fork in the road, he can stay put or simply take it. Fortunately for him, his friends and family root for his success. The Little Tin Man movie has heart; it is about the bigger story of discovering that inner push that will lead you to your dreams. All of us have dreams, some stronger than others, but often we let them fade for the easier path of complacency. Herman wants to have it all: career, love, and happiness. With a strong supporting cast, this story will make you root for the underdog and reminded you that you can't stop thinking of tomorrow, even though you are trying to make it through today. Aaron Beelner creates a believable role of one man's journey in the pursuit of happiness. I saw this film at its Atlanta premiere and it gave me hope in the endless possibilities available every day.
This is my favorite indie film of 2013. The premise is original: Tired of being overlooked for bigger roles, a struggling dwarf actor sets out to be cast as the Tin Man in Martin Scorsese's interpretation of The Wizard of Oz. In addition to an interesting story line, you get a colorful cast of characters and lots of laughs. Leading man, Aaron Beelner said, "You always want your film to get attention, but it's really become more about advocacy for people with disabilities. This film educates, entertains and informs all at once and becomes an advocate for those people who deserve a chance." This film is funny, inspiring, and heartfelt. It deserves at least a cult following, if not wider audience appeal if given the chance. "The Little Tin Man" has made its rounds on the festival circuit, garnering the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Napa Valley Film Festival and the Indie Spirit Award at the Naples International Film Festival.
