Movie Info

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 with 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, his best friend (Kay Cannon, Writer of Pitch Perfect, 30 Rock) urges him to use 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.

At its best, the movie has a sort of sitcom feel, with swift pacing and delivery, and the strong ensemble cast has a natural rapport.

Film Threat

Without going overboard in either direction of pathos or black comedy, [Matthew Perkins] makes The Little Tin Man one of the more sympathetic onscreen treatments of dwarfism.
