Jodie Foster makes an impressive directorial debut with Scott Frank`s compelling and bittersweet screenplay about a child prodigy caught in the harsh spotlight of fame. Starring Oscar winners Foster and Dianne Wiest, Little Man Tate is s stirring and magnificent portrait of the human spirit. Fred Tate (Adam Hann-Byrd) is a gifted pianist, a math genius, 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 stifled by his environment.
Desperate to encourage his potential, yet afraid that he will miss out on a normal childhood, his single mom Dede (Foster) reluctantly allows a psychologist (Wiest) to enroll Fred in a school for exceptional children. But when he`s rushed headlong into academia, Dede`s worst fears are realized - Fred is more isolated and alone than ever. And it`s up to Dede to become what little Freddy`s been looking for all along... a Mom.
