Jodie Foster (The Accused) ,akes an impressive directorial debut (Tribune Media Services) with Scott Frank's (Out Of Sight, Get Shorty) compelling and bittersweet screenplay about a child prodigy caught in the harsh spotlight of fame. Starring two-time Oscar winners Foster and Dianne Wiest, Little Man Tate is a stirring and magnificent portrait of the human spirit (The Hollywood Reporter)!
Fred Tate (Adam Hann-Byrd) is a gifted pianist, a math geniusm an incredible artist...and he's only seven years old. But this child prodigy is also adrift. Shunned by his peers and bored by his schoolwork, Fred is stiffled by his environment. Desperate to encourage his potential, yet afraid he'll miss out on a normal childhood, his single mum Dede (Foster) reluctantly allows a pyschologist (Wiest) to enrol Fred in a school for exceptional children. But when he's rushed headlong into academia, Dede's worst fears are realised - Fred is more isloated and alone than ever, and it's up to Dede to become what little Freddy's been looking for all along...a Mum.
