Small Time (2014)
Anchor Bay Entertainment
The directorial debut of Joel Surnow, co-creator of the hit series 24, SMALL TIME stars Christopher Meloni (LAW & ORDER: SVU) as a used car dealer from Van Nuys, CA stuck in the thick of a mid-life crisis. At a crossroads, he longs for the family he once had and hopes to move on by marrying his long-time girlfriend, Linda. Unfortunately, he can’t help but stumble on the same tricky roadblock: being hung up on his ex-wife, Barbara.
Presently, the only “family” at his side is carefree freewheeling business partner, Ash Martini (Dean Norris, BREAKING BAD). So, when his distant son Freddy (Devon Bostick, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID) graduates from high school and wants to skip college so he can follow in his father’s footsteps, Al welcomes him at the lot with open arms. The father-son combination proves to be a dream team until the slick world of car sales begins to change Freddy for the worse. Knowing he wants more for his son and himself, Al must find a way to get both of them to move on.
