Little City is a 1997 comedy/romance film written and directed by Roberto Benabib. It went straight to video in the UK.
The movie begins with Kevin sitting in an AA support group saying he thought his relationships with women would change after he stopped drinking. Kevin sees a woman he wants, but loses interest in her after he gets her. He realizes this is not a healthy relationship pattern but doesn’t know how to change it.
Rebecca, a single woman new to the “small town” of San Francisco, meets Kevin, the sexy, but promiscuous bartender at her new job. Although Kevin comes onto her immediately, Rebecca recognizes Kevin’s playboy ways and rebuffs him, however, the two become good friends.
Kevin is Adam’s friend who drives a cab to support himself while he pursues his passion for painting. Adam confides in Kevin about his girlfriend, Nina. Adam thinks she is having an affair, but he also tells Kevin that Nina’s suspected infidelity only bothers him because someone else is paying attention to her. He gives Kevin the analogy that when he was young, he had a toy car that he became tired of, but regained interest in it after his little brother started playing with it. Kevin tells him how messed up that is, but Adam only shrugs it off. Later, Nina comes home and tells Adam she is tired when he initiates sex. Realizing he may be suspicious, she sleeps with Adam, even though she has just come from sleeping with her lover.
Kevin and Nina, who is a chef in a ritzy restaurant, meet in a Catholic Church where he tells her that Adam suspects she is cheating on him. Nina is alarmed and asks Kevin if Adam knows who her lover is. Kevin, it turns out, is the man in which she is cheating on Adam with because she was feeling neglected by Adam. The two express guilt over deceiving Adam, but they also acknowledge they can’t stay away from each other. Nina also feels that Adam is not over his ex-girlfriend, Kate, who left him for a woman, Anne, and whom came out as a lesbian.
