Greg Kinnear & Jennifer Ehle

Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming drama Little Men with Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Ehle, and Alfred Molina. The movie actually features Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri as two teens, Jake and Tony.

The new film from the New York City-centric filmmaker Ira Sachs (Love is Strange) premiered at Sundance earlier this year and centers on the relationship of two boys and how it becomes complicated when their parents get into a business disagreement.

Also starring Paulina Garcia, Talia Balsam, Maliq Johnson, Anthony Angelo Flammino, Madison Wright, and Mauricio Bustamante, Little Men opens on August 5th. Check out the trailer and poster below.

Looks like a good film.

Ira Sachs' Upcoming Drama

When 13-year-old Jake’s (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father’s old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia), a dressmaker from Chile, runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake’s parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) — one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist — ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. For Leonor, the proposed new rent is untenable, and a feud ignites between the adults. At first, Jake and Tony don’t seem to notice; the two boys, so different on the surface, begin to develop a formative kinship as they discover the pleasures of being young in Brooklyn. Jake aspires to be an artist, while Tony wants to be an actor, and they have dreams of going to the same prestigious arts high school together. But the children can’t avoid the problems of their parents forever, and soon enough, the adult conflict intrudes upon the borders of their friendship.
