Clio Barnard’s second feature, which premiered to universal acclaim at Cannes, is one of this year’s key British releases. Set on the outskirts of Bradford, the film follows two young lads, Arbor (Conner Chapman) and Swifty (Shaun Thomas), and their dealings with a local scrap dealer. Boldly cinematic and featuring astonishing performances from the two leads, The Selfish Giant further cements Barnard’s reputation as a visionary filmmaker.
