Here, in Google-order, are the five B.P. nominees from 2005:

    FINding Neverland
    MILlion Dollar Baby
    THE Aviator

And here I've ranked them in order of suitability to be called 'little':

You do the ranking, too, before you decode, and we'll see if 'little' 
actually communicates anything.

(Anyone can play, and publish the results.)
