Product Notes

Thirteen-year-old Arbor and his best friend Swifty are part of society's outcasts, excluded from the social dynamic of both their school and their neighborhood. Forced into searching for and selling scrap metal to help feed their families, the boys come across fellow misfit, Kitten (Sean Gilder, SHAMELESS), a local scrap dealer and yard owner. Hoping to gain an extra edge in their on-the-fringes occupation, both boys attempt to win Kitten's favor. Swifty by obsequiousness, Arbor by emulation. But the hardened Kitten seems to have no compassion for the youths who are yet so much like him, and the healthy competition between the two boys soon escalates until a wedge that threatens to end their friendship is driven between them. That is until a tragic event brings all three together in a way none of them ever thought possible. Echoing the unfettered depiction of British working class life of Ken Loach, director Clio Barnard's THE SELFISH GIANT is a contemporary take on the Oscar Wilde fable about the virtue of being one's self in the face of overwhelming adversity.
