Canada’s Top Ten: Sleeping Giant

Fri & Sat, Jan 22 & 23 / 9 pm
Directed by Andrew Cividino
2015, Canada, 89 min

In an isolated cottage community, three teenagers while away the idle hours playing video games, getting wasted, and generally engaging in dimwitted shit while their parents remain unreliable or just absent. With its creeping atmosphere of ennui and menace, this film provides a whip-smart look at the emotional extremes of adolescence, their tragic potential, and is one of the most finely observed debuts to come from Canada in recent memory.

Reviews

Brilliant performances by the three young men coming-of-age right before our eyes...hits you in the gut. It is one of the best films of 2015.
