Canada’s Top Ten: Giant Little Ones

Fri, Apr 26 / 7 pm
Sat & Sun, April 27 & 28 / 5 pm & 7 pm
Directed by Keith Behrman
2018, Canada, 93 min

Adolescents face enormous pressure to make life-defining decisions every day and they want to lock in their identities sooner rather than later. All of this pressure is exacerbated by physical and social changes. Franky, the hero of Keith Behrman’s exquisite and generous Giant Little Ones, is under more pressure than most. His life was altered when his father left his mother for a man. Franky is left confused and angry toward his father for breaking up the family. Things are further confused for Franky when his wild birthday party ends in a sexual encounter no one could have imagined, including his best friend and girlfriend. As Franky’s world crumbles, he and his friends are forced to decide what kind of people they want to be. – TIFF

Reviews

Giant Little Ones captures how high school environments have and haven’t changed in a generation where LGBTQ acceptance is becoming common. To put it simply, Giant Little Ones is a film that could not be made in the 1990s and maybe not even the 2000s. This also speaks to the changing cultural landscape. It’s more important now that we have acceptance of LGBTQ citizens. Without the right family support, we have no choice but to run away or worse.
