Little Man Tate
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
2.5 Stars
Little Man Tate Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Greta and Trish
Rating: Year: 1991 Category: Drama
Director: Jodie Foster Time: 99 min. Writer: Scott Frank

Mine: Enjoyable, if sometimes self rightous, drama. Jodie and Harry are very good. Great score.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Moving, extraordinarily empathic look at a child genius; his single, working-class mom (Foster) can't give him the support and stimulation he needs--but neither can the director (Wiest) of a school for exceptional children who takes him under her wing. Beautifully realized by Foster in her directing debut; her performance is equally strong. Bittersweet screenplay by Scott Frank; solid jazz score by Mark Isham. Bob Balaban appears unbilled as a quizmaster.
