Canada Now 2019 is a showcase of New Canadian Cinema in the UK, we are screening three outstanding new pieces of filmmaking as part of our BEACON Season.
Giant Little Ones:
Franky Winter (Josh Wiggins) and Ballas Kohl (Darren Mann) have been best friends since childhood. They are high school royalty: handsome, stars of the swim team and popular with girls.
They live a perfect teenage life, until the night of Franky's epic 17th birthday party, when Franky and Ballas are involved in an unexpected incident that changes their lives forever.
Giant Little Ones is a heartfelt and intimate coming-of-age story about friendship, self-discovery and the power of love without labels.
Canada’s Top Ten 2018; Toronto International Film Festival; Audience Award, Gôteborg Film Festival.
"There's something enormously refreshing about the openness and honesty found in Keith Behrman's coming-of-age film, Giant Little Ones." – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Behrman has crafted a classic high school tale of outsiders finding themselves ... The images are sumptuously saturated and gorgeously crafted, and the soundtrack thrums and whines with anxiety and racing pulse." – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
Director: Keith Behrman
Run time: 93 mins
