After exploring a relationship between older men and their families in Love Is Strange, co-writer/director Ira Sachs turns his attention to juvenile relationships struggling under the weight of combative parents. Little Men continues the helmers fascination with askew domestic issues and the rental war zone of New York City, mixing real estate and broken hearts for a sensitive drama about the fragility of friendships. Led by terrific performances and a frightening understanding of passive-aggressive combat, Little Men is a modest drama with unexpectedly robust emotion, playing into Sachss special way with eroding relationships and burgeoning insensitivities emerging from unlikely sources. In a way, its almost a continuation of Love Is Strange, reinforcing Sachss fascination with family ties.
