Sundance Hit ‘Little Men’ Goes To U.K.’s Altitude

Sold by Mongrel Intl., Ira Sachs drama rolls out internationally

BERLIN – In a major territory deal on a Sundance hit, Altitude Film Distribution has acquired U.K. rights to Ira Sachs’ Sundance crowd-pleaser “Little Men.”

Marking Altitude’s second Sachs’ title after releasing “Love Is Strange,” deal was struck by Altitude Film Entertainment’s Ellie Gibbons and “Little Men’s” sales agent, Charlotte Mickie at Mongrel International.

Charting the unlikely friendship between Jake (Theo Tapitz), a sensitive middle school, and brash young neighbor Tony (Michael Barbieri), “Little Men” chronicles the moments when young teens begin to become the people they’ll be in adulthood.

Warmly reviewed at Sundance – Variety’s Peter Debruge called it “a little movie brimming with little truths about modern life” – “Little Men” co-stars Oscar-nominated Greg Kinnear (“Little Miss Sunchine”), BAFTA-nominated Jennifer Ehle (“50 Shades of Grey”) and Berlin best actress winner Paulina Garcia (“Gloria”).

“Following in the steps of ‘Love Is Strange,’ I’m very pleased to be working again with Will and Hamish and their great team at Altitude. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with individuals who share similar values in both life and cinema,” Sachs enthused.
