Synopsis

Jake is a quiet middle schooler with dreams of being an artist. He meets the affably brash Tony at his grandfather’s funeral, and the unlikely pair soon hit it off. The friendship is put at risk, however, when a rent dispute between Jake’s father and Tony’s mother threatens to become contentious.

MUBI's take

Inspired by Ozu’s childhood films, Ira Sachs’s coming-of-age drama is both microcosmically intimate and vast in its thematic concerns. Anchored by a remarkable pair of performances from its young leads, Little Men essays the tension between youthful aspiration and the jaded imperatives of adulthood.
