Clio Barnard’s highly anticipated follow up to The Arbor doesn’t disappoint. In the great tradition of British Social Realism, Barnard brings Oscar Wilde’s fable up to date, and right here, in Yorkshire. Two young boys Arbor (a reference to her first film?) and Swifty, living at the edge of safety and society, become involved in the illegal scrap trade and horse and cart racing. Tension and tragedy are always just around the corner for these teenage boys and their families.
"An intensely felt piece of social realism, reinventing Oscar Wilde's story, shows director Clio Barnard growing into one of Britain's best young film-makers."4/5 The Guardian
"Is there a more intriguing British filmmaker than Clio Barnard right now? On the evidence of The Selfish Giant, possibly not."Little White Lies
Please note: the screening at 11am on Monday 4 November is a Kino Bambino parent and baby screening. The screening at 11am on Thursday 7 November is part of the Early Doors strand.
