Movie Info

When documentarian Nicole Conn and her partner, Gwendolyn Baba, decide to adopt a child in 2002, their surrogate mother turns out to have serious undisclosed medical issues. Refusing to terminate their child, the two choose to have Nicholas born 100 days early, leaving the under-one-pound infant with a very small chance of survival. Nicole and Gwendolyn battle to keep Nicholas alive, while the stress of the medical emergencies tests their relationship.

Critic Reviews for Little Man

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (6)

  • While Conn's story is inherently compelling, it's pretty much ruined in the telling thanks to her unnerving choice to fill it with a twinkling piano-heavy score, florid narration, and trembling slow-motion.

  • Your baby is near death. Instead of dropping everything to save his life, you make sure the video camera keeps rolling.

    December 2, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • With her penchant for frilly romance and sentimentality, the focus is often, cloyingly, on Conn as the heroine of the story, the mother who (sob!) wouldn't give up.

    December 2, 2005 | Rating: 2/4
  • Little Man is an unusually honest film about the ambiguity of maternal love.

    December 1, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • What lingers are the images of Nicholas's manhandling by a host of dispassionate medicos and a sense that 'quality of life' is a much shakier concept than we could've imagined.

  • Tells a tale rife with implications about abortion and the consequences of modern medical technological progress.

Audience Reviews for Little Man

  • Nov 21, 2007
    The struggles that go on throughout the film, not just with the baby, but with the rest of the family and friends and especially Nicole is heart-wrenching to say the least. I highly recommend the film.
