Official Blurb ""THE SELFISH GIANT", inspired by Oscar Wilde’s story, is about 13 year old Arbor and his best friend Swifty. Excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighbourhood, the two boys meet Kitten, a local scrap dealer. They begin to collect scrap metal for him using a horse and a cart. Swifty has a natural gift with horses while Arbor imitates Kitten, keen to impress him and make some money. However, Kitten favours Swifty, leaving Arbor feeling hurt and excluded, driving a wedge between the boys.
"THE SELFISH GIANT" is Clio Barnard’s second feature, her first was "THE ARBOR", an experimental documentary about Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar." - RIALTO DISTRIBUTION PR
