The Smoke Screen has long been a fan of director Ira Sachs, favourably reviewing his gay relationship drama Love is Strange some years back. So it seems right to highlight his return to cinemas with his new drama Little Men, which he will be presenting at Curzon Mayfair on September 15. Details below from Curzon:
Jake (Theo Taplitz) is a quiet, sensitive middle schooler with dreams of being an artist. He meets the affably brash Tony (Michael Barbieri) at his grandfather’s funeral, and the unlikely pair soon hit it off. The budding friendship is put at risk, however, when a rent dispute between Jake’s parents, Brian and Kathy (Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle), and Tony’s mother, Leonor (Paulina Garcia), threatens to become contentious.
Q&A screening: Director Ira Sachs joins us to discuss his new film following a special preview screening.
Thursday 15 September 6.30pm, Mayfair
Tickets £17.50 / £15.00 for Curzon Members
