'Little Men' and Why We Can't All Get Along

Director Ira Sachs makes intimate little movies that I really enjoy. Keep the Lights On, Love Is Strange and now Little Men constitute what he calls his New York trilogy -- they're all set there -- and the new one is about two families who will get ensnared in a rent dispute. Sachs has much to say about the ways that good people do unkind things to each other. I reviewed the film for The New Republic.
