Ira Sachs & Mauricio Zacharias received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for their “Little Men” screenplay yesterday, and it wasn’t their first time: The pair earned the same nod in 2014 for “Love Is Strange” and in 2012 for “Keep the Lights On.” Magnolia Pictures has shared the shooting script for “Little Men” exclusively with Indiewire, and you can read it in its entirety below.
The film stars Greg Kinnear, Paulina García (who also received an Indie Spirit nod) and Jennifer Ehle alongside Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri as two 13-year-olds who form a unique bond after moving into the same New York apartment building. As with “Love Is Strange,” it first premiered at Sundance and has earned favorable reviews.
The script comes in at 104 pages and is dated July 27, 2015. Avail yourself of its low-key charm and insight:
