RETURN
Set on the outskirts of Bradford, 'The Selfish Giant' follows two rebellious young lads - Arbor (Conner Chapman) and Swifty (Shaun Thomas) - and their involvement with a local scrap dealer. At first their earnings seem to roll in but as jealousy and resentment begin to drive the boys apart Arbor will resort to a desperate act of greed, the tragic consequences of which will tear apart the lives of everyone involved. . . Boldly cinematic and thoroughly gripping, Clio Barnard’s second feature boasts breathtaking cinematography and astonishing performances from its two young leads. ★★★★★ "Clio Barnard's social-realist tale of a teen scrap scavenger goes at it like a supercharged Ken Loach" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Hauntingly perfect" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph "Very few directors balance a command of the more formal aspects of cinema with an effortless approach to acting and storytelling. Clio Barnard is one of them" - Peter Strickland
