Amazing acting, brutal context. - The Selfish Giant review by JD

Spoiler Alert
08/05/2014

Set in the poorest part of Bradford, this is a film about extreme contemporary British poverty. It is very real but very harsh. In the kernel of this grim environment are some very tender hearted people. The 2 young lads are played brilliantly well, how do they bring out such talent when there are so many bad child actors in so many films? I felt so invested in the hopes and fears of the lads that the endings were devastating (no plot spoilers but you will cry).
