Movie Reviews

A moving and poignant story.

"I am a grandmother of quadruplets born prematurely at 29 weeks. "Little Man" is the only film I have ever seen that shows the reality of what a family goes through when a precious little one is born too soon. A lot of the film follows Nicholas in the NICU, and then the film shows the impact on Nicole and her family when Nicholas is discharged home on oxygen, an apnea monitor, and breathing treatments, and what it's like to deal with running a mini-ICU in the home. I had never seen that portrayed in any film before, as unfortunately, that is the reality with most preemies, along with surgeries, multiple meds, and feeding challenges. Nicholas had more medical problems come up in time and the film follows the changes in the family that occur as he struggles. This is a compelling, beautiful, and poignant film and I highly recommend it."

"I recorded the documentary off of Showtime mainly because Nicole Conn was the film maker. I thought it was an intense and moving film. I was surprised at the level of intimacy that was exposed by the filmaker of her family and herself. I do not have children but I do think if I faced a difficult situation in the period prior to birth, this film would supply a very stark view of what I could expect in the birth of a child born prematurely or with diabilities. A good film that passed extremely quickly considering it ran close to 2 hours."
One of the best documentaries I have ever seen

"I am surprised and saddened that this is no longer in print. I own a copy, ordered it from Nicole's website before it was even released.

What a wonderful story. Really a great documentary to show your children, teaching diversity, tolerance, and compassion.

Nicole and her partner Gwen never really come a resolution at the end of the movie, though they were most certainly at odds. I often wonder what became of them, and if they made it. I hope so.....

If you have an opportunity to buy or watch this DVD, please do. You won't regret it."

"I just watched this Documentary/Film on Showtime today and WOW!!! I think anyone at all not just those in Nicole & Gwen's situation will take away from watching this film a new sense of what compassion,love,spirit,soul,strength and the will to live truly are. The film not only gave me a look into the families life but as well what all those involved (NICU Nurses,Doctors,Friends and Family) endure in situations like this, they all experience every realm of feelings that the family and themselves go through which in the world today with such non-compassion especially it seems in the Medical Field, was so refreshing to see that there are still Nurses and Doctors that truly do care about and have a connection with the patient and thier families.

It also shows you that no matter your sexual preference that it all boils down to one thing we are all Human and go through the same happiness,struggles,fears,strength and love as any family whether Gay or Straight. I love this film and recommend it to everyone, I felt so connected that I didn't want it to end I want to know more, I hope that Nicole & Gwen continue to film so that we can follow Nicholas's life with them, so they always know that they are not alone and have even strangers that are out here that care for thier Family and wish them love and strength in each new day with Nicolas and Gabrielle."
