Little Men Directed by Ira Sachs
Looking at the situation in “Little Men” is like looking through a prism: what you perceive depends on the angle. It is reminiscent of Asghar Farhadi’s “A Separation,” a similar story of the clash of two families from different backgrounds and classes… [But] “Little Men” is extremely powerful in its own right, with its devotion to its characters’ differing perspectives so refreshing in an increasingly black-and-white world.

The juicy, well-integrated collision of social strata is as specific to [Chekhov’s Russia in The Seagull] as Sachs and Zacharias’s rendering is to the borough in which the film is set amidst the lengthy labor pains that necessarily accompany contemporary gentrification. Viva la huelga!

Superbly acted, this is a quietly perceptive film that focuses on a moment at which lives come together, change, and move apart. There’s a certain no-big-deal quality to Little Men and to Sachs’s intentions which is immensely appealing. And at this point in the commercial fortunes of mainstream cinema, it’s worth being reminded that—given the current pressures to be demonstrative, sometimes wildly overdemonstrative—taking the no-big-deal approach can be quite a significant deal in itself.
