After a critically-acclaimed debut at BFI Flare Festival, GIANT LITTLES ONES was selected as the opening night film of CANDA NOW Festival 2019 last week at the Curzon Soho with director Keith Behrman in attendance.
In what Mirror.co.uk calls “a contemporary, fluid take on a coming-of-age drama and an original twist on the coming-out story”, GIANT LITTLES ONES stands out as a refreshingly modern yet heartfelt take on the friendship, identity, and love.
Franky Winter (Josh Wiggins) and Ballas Kohl (Darren Mann) have been best friends since childhood. They are high school royalty: handsome, stars of the swim team and popular with girls. They live a perfect teenage life – until the night of Franky’s epic 17th birthday party, when Franky and Ballas are involved in an unexpected incident that changes their lives forever. With standout performances from newcomers Josh Wiggins and Darren Mann alongside Maria Bello and Kyle MacLachlan, GIANT LITTLES ONES is a heartfelt and intimate coming-of-age story about friendship, self-discovery and the power of love without labels.
Following its UK theatrical tour with CANADA NOW Festival, GIANT LITTLE ONES will be released in the UK on Home Entertainment later this year.
