About the Movie
The Little Tin Man is an intelligent and hilarious exploration of a struggling dwarf actor's refusal to accept the status quo. To say that Herman (Aaron Beelner) is dissatisfied would be an understatement of epic proportions. Unfulfilled working at his half brother's restaurant and unhappy with the typecast arc of his acting career, he is ready for something different. When Herman hears about an audition for the Mayor of Munchkinland in Martin Scorsese's big budget remake of The Wizard of Oz, he takes the opportunity to transcend his inherent limitations and aim just a little bit higher. As life begins to imitate art, Herman and his crew of misfits find themselves on a humor-filled journey of self-discovery that delivers big laughs and even bigger insights into the lengths we'll go for the things that we love. Making his directorial debut, Matthew Perkins delivers a rare thing, indeed: a truly funny, often touching indie comedy.
Fun feel-good movie
This indie film is unique in that it stars a lot of people from the NYC improv world, like Upright Citizens Brigade. You’ll also recognize a lot of people who’ve had cameos on 30 Rock, SNL, or popular commercials, like Gieco. Terrific ensemble cast. I’d like to see them in a TV version or something so you can keep following them along.
Just my kind of crew
It’s one of those movies where you wish you could hang out with these characters in real life and then you’re sad when it’s over bc it’s just a movie.
A must watch.
In this day of remakes and big budget flops, it's refreshing to see something that offers originality. I enjoyed the humorous and heartfelt moments throughout the scenes. The chemistry and talent of the actors is incredible, as well. I truly appreciate the different perspective this film offers the audience. It's a must watch.
