About Little Man Tate
When Fred Tate was a year old he could read. At four, he wrote poetry. Today, he paints murals in oils and in water, plays piano at competition level, and solves mathematical equations of dazzling intricacy. His artistic and scientific brilliance is matched by an acute sensitivity to the complex emotions in the world that surrounds him. Today, Fred Tare is seven years old. Marking the feature film directing debut of Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster, Little Man Tate tells the story of this extraordinarily gifted seven-year-old boy and his attempts to fit in.
