Little Man Tate



Little Man Tate

Role: Eddie

Director: Jodie Foster

Year: 1991

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. "Little Man Tate" tells the story of this extraordinary gifted seven year old boy and his attempts to fit in. Fred's life is greatly affected by the relationships he shares with two women: his working class mother and a brilliant child psychologist, both of whom have conflicting ideas of how to raise him.
