When 13-year-old Jake's (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father's Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single, Chilean mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia) runs the dress shop downstairs. When Jake's parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) ask Leonor to pay a higher rent and a feud ignites between the adults the boys take an oath of silence against their parents in protest. Directed by Ira Sachs (Love is Strange, Keep the Lights On, Forty Shades of Blue) with his trademark humanism and insight, Little Men is the story of a life defining friendship amid family turmoil, and one of the best reviewed American films in years.

I would not recommend this movie to anyone unless of course your trying to figure out how to make a confusing movie.
The main value of this movie is that it provides a good mark for amateur film-makers to aim for. If you aspire to become the next YouTube phenomenon or just make little movies to show friends, this movie provides a good standard that may be obtainable for most people.
This movie was supposed to deliver a socially uplifting message, but the message becomes lost due to the poor script writing. It would have been better to have created a comedy given the constraints placed on this project. Having said all this, I still give this movie three stars since it is somewhat unique in many ways and has value... but not necessarily a lot of entertainment value.
