Small Time is a 2014 coming-of-age drama film that follows 18-year-old Freddy Klein (Devon Bostick) as he grapples with entering adulthood and joining his father's used car dealership business. Starring Christopher Meloni and Dean Norris, the film explores the themes of family, loyalty, and the complexities of growing up. The film opens with a glimpse into the daily operations of Al Klein's (Christopher Meloni) used car dealership, where he and his partner Ash (Dean Norris) have been selling cars for over thirty years. Ash has a son, Bobby, who is graduating high school and heading to college, while Al's son, Freddy, is struggling to find his place in the world.

Freddy is a high school senior who is studying hard, but not necessarily for the future. He's interested in cars and girls, and he's constantly trying to get in with the cool crowd. When Bobby leaves for college, Freddy sees an opportunity to make some quick cash and join forces with his father. Al is hesitant to let Freddy into the business, knowing all too well the challenges of running a used car dealership.

As Freddy starts his internship with his father, he quickly learns that the business is not as glamorous as he thought it would be. Freddy struggles to fit in and finds that his dad's customers are not easy to work with. He also begins to see the struggles his father faces in keeping the business afloat.

Meanwhile, Freddy is also dealing with a love triangle between his longtime crush, Becca (Bridget Moynahan), and her new boyfriend, Jimmy (Kevin Nealon). Despite Becca's insistence that she only sees Freddy as a friend, he can't help but hope for something more.

As Freddy navigates his new role at the dealership and his complicated love life, he begins to see his father in a different light. He realizes that Al has sacrificed a lot to provide for him and to keep the business running. Small Time is a poignant exploration of family dynamics and the struggles of growing up.

The film is directed by Joel Surnow, who is best known for creating the television series 24. It is loosely based on his own experiences working at his father's used car dealership in the 1960s. Small Time has received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the performances of the cast and the film's ability to capture the essence of the American Dream.

In conclusion, Small Time is a well-crafted drama film that offers a poignant exploration of family dynamics and coming-of-age struggles. With strong performances from its cast and nuanced direction from Joel Surnow, Small Time is a great watch for anyone who appreciates a good character-driven story.

Small Time is a 2014 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0 and a MetaScore of 54.
