Little Men Review - AVClub

AVClub: A hallmark of theater fans getting older is an increased willingness to sympathize with Benny, the landlord in the musical Rent whose bohemian non-tenants resent him for trying to charge them money. In a way, Ira Sachs’ Little Men attempts to update and lend nuance to this conflict for the vastly more gentrified New York City of 2016, where hardly anyone can afford bohemia and even struggling artists need a steady paycheck. Brian Jardine (Greg Kinnear) is a New York actor, but his psychotherapist wife, Kathy (Jennifer Ehle), carries the family financially, while 13-year-old son Jake (Theo Taplitz) aspires to attend LaGuardia High School as a budding artist.
