The Selfish Giant

Quinzaine 2013 | Feature film | 1h33

13 year old Arbor and his best friend Swifty, both excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighbourhood, meet Kitten, a local scrapdealer and begin collecting scrap metal for him using a horse andcart. Swifty has a natural gift with horses while Arbor emulates Kitten – keen to impress him and make some money. But when Kitten begins to favour Swifty, leaving Arbor hurt and excluded, a wedge is driven between the boys. Arbor becomes increasingly greedy and exploitative, increasing the tension between them, and leading to a tragic event which transforms them all.
