Film Details

The Selfish Giant

United Kingdom | 2013 | Clio Barnard

The Selfish Giant

Internationally, this was one of the most acclaimed movies of 2013 (it has a 96% "fresh" rating on RottenTomatoes.com) and it won the 2013 British Independent Film Award for Best British Independent Film. The movie is a slice of working class social realism set in Northern England, about two 13-year-old best friends who go to work for a disreputable scrap metal dealer after they are expelled from school. Phenomenal performances from the entire cast ensure that The Selfish Giant (the title comes from Oscar Wilde) packs a real punch. "Devastating in its simplicity and honesty...A colossus of feeling." -The Village Voice.
