Giant Little Ones, which showed successfully at UK film festivals BFI Flare and Canada Now earlier this year, will be released by Lionsgate Home Entertainment in the UK next spring – on digital download on 3 February 2020 and on DVD on 10 February.
The critically acclaimed (including by me!) coming of age drama was written and directed by Keith Behrman, who has crafted a beautifully-judged story about adolescence that doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects.
Here’s the synopsis:
“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.
Directed by Keith Behrman and with extraordinary performances from newcomers Josh Wiggins and Darren Mann, alongside Maria Bello and Kyle MacLachlan, the refreshingly modern GIANT LITTLES ONES is a heartfelt and intimate story about friendship, self-discovery and the power of love without labels.”
The film has a runtime of approx 92 mins and is certificate 15. The DVD includes a Behind the Scenes with Cast & Crew.
