the selfish giantClio Barnard’s powerful follow-up to The Arbor is an intense social realist film loosely adapted from Oscar Wilde’s fairytale and centred on two young boys named Arbor and Swifty. Excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighbourhood, the two boys progress from bunking-off school to stealing copper, when influenced by local scrap merchant Kitten. Barnard has been compared to Ken Loach with the critically acclaimed film drawing comparisons with Loach’s Kes in its humanity and themes -“a heart-wrenching movie” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
