Being best mates proves a difficult and ultimately tragic experience for Bradford boys Arbor and Swifty in this gritty contemporary fable, inspired by writer Oscar Wilde's short story. Excluded from school and shunned by their own community, the disadvantaged young teens resort to collecting scrap metal for shady local dealer Kitten — the Selfish Giant of the title. But though cocky 13-year-old Arbor does everything he can to impress his boss, Kitten actually favours his sweeter-natured pal. The more Arbor's jealousy consequently grows, the more his friendship with Swifty suffers, leading to a poignant and powerful conclusion. Brilliantly acted and richly atmospheric, this drama reinforces writer-director Clio Barnard's position as one of modern British cinema's biggest talents.
