Ira Sachs knows how to tell stories about humans, a bit too deeply. He stirs up the scenario with joy & sadness, but offers something pure. 'Little Men', THE Finest English Film I've seen this year so far, is a tale on family, friendship & loss. Sachs, in a crisp 84-minutes, successfully delivers a story that touches the core of heart, without ever getting melodramatic. Need I say more?

'Little Men' Synopsis: A new pair of best friends have their bond tested by their parents' battle over a dress shop lease.

'Little Men' is engrossing, from start to finish. You're invested in the lives of these people, you're with them in their happy times & you sulk when they are beaten by circumstances. Sachs & Mauricio Zacharias's Screenplay is excellent. The Writing is self-aware & its approach to narrate its characters, never falters. Sachs' Direction is simplistic, yet effective. I hope there is Oscar chase for this man. 'Little Men' isn't an easy film to make, but Sachs has handled it like a true pro. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, merit a special mention.

Performance-Wise: Greg Kinnear is marvelously restrained, delivering an absolute master-class in acting. Jennifer Ehle is top-notch. Paulina Garcia is flawless. Theo Taplitz & Michael Barbieri are remarkable. The kids match up-to the seniors at all times & that's no small achievement! Talia Balsam leaves a mark. Alfred Molina is exceptional in a cameo.

On the whole, 'Little Men' is unmissable! Two Big Thumbs Up!
