FILM SERIES

One Take

The Little’s Staff Picks Series is a grab bag of the mysterious, the fun, and the purely awesome. Each staff member has selected a movie to recommend — no genre or era is off limits. This series is the modern equivalent of stepping into your favorite video rental store, and seeking a film you’ll swoon over. These are favorites from our Little staff, but hopefully they’ll become your new favorites as well.
