Storyline

The Little Tin Man is an intelligent and hilarious exploration of a struggling dwarf actor's refusal to accept the status quo. To say that Herman (Aaron Beelner) is dissatisfied with would be an understatement of epic proportions. Unfulfilled working at his half brother's restaurant and unhappy with the typecast arc of his acting career, he is ready for something different. When Herman hears about an audition for the Mayor of Munchkinland in Martin Scorsese's big budget remake of The Wizard of Oz, his best friend (Kay Cannon, Writer of Pitch Perfect, 30 Rock) urges him to use the opportunity to transcend his inherent limitations and aim just a little bit higher. As life begins to imitate art, Herman and his crew of misfits find themselves on a humor-filled journey of self-discovery that delivers big laughs and even bigger insights into the lengths we'll go for the things that we love. Making his directorial debut, Matthew Perkins delivers a rare thing, indeed: a truly funny, often ... Written by Anonymous

Fun film
19 November 2013 | by mjcr93See all my reviews

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.
