A world beyond your Wilde-est dreams

When 13-year-old Arbor is expelled from school, he and his loyal friend Swifty set forth on new adventures. They are selling scrap metal to a greedy and cynical junkyard dealer who goes by the name of Kitten. THE SELFISH GIANT is inspired by Oscar Wilde's short story with the same name, and was one of the most critically acclaimed films in Cannes this year, where it won the Europa Cinemas Label award. With her second feature, Clio Barnard has established herself as a director in the vein of Ken Loach, Lynne Ramsay and Shane Meadows.
