Released:

Rating:
R
Little Children is the acclaimed 2006 romance drama from celebrated co-writer-director Todd Field (In the Bedroom). Sarah (Kate Winslet, Titanic) lives in her Massachusetts home and spends her days as a wife to a businessman who visits explicit porno sites to fulfill his fantasies, raising her young daughter and trying to keep a friendship with three other suburban housewives who she's just not on a level with. These women dare her to approach Brad (Patrick Wilson, Hard Candy), a handsome stranger with a young son in tow and get his phone number. But they get closer than expected and begin a passionate affair behind their partners' backs. These same women also have some consternation in the shape of Ronnie (Jackie Earle Haley, Watchmen) a convicted sex offender living in their midst. However by the end of the movie the lives of these three will collide together in a way they never imagined.
