The Selfish Giant (15)
Starring: Conner Chapman, Shaun Thomas, Sean Gilder & Lorraine Ashbourne
Director: Clio Barnard
The Selfish Giant is a contemporary fable inspired by Oscar Wilde’s story about 13 year old Arbor and his best friend Swifty. Excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighbourhood, the two boys meet the ironically named thug Kitten, a local scrapdealer, and begin collecting scrap metal for him using a horse and cart. However, when Arbor begins to emulate Kitten by becoming greedy and exploitative, tensions soon start to build, leading to a tragic event which transforms them all.
