Giant Little Ones

R, 93 minutes


Franky Winter (Josh Wiggins) and Ballas Kohl (Darren Mann) have been best friends since childhood. They are high school royalty: handsome, stars of the swim team and popular with girls. They live a perfect teenage life – until the night of Franky’s epic 17th birthday party, when Franky and Ballas are involved in an unexpected incident that changes their lives forever. Giant Little Ones is a heartfelt and intimate coming-of-age story about friendship, self-discovery, and the power of love without labels. (2019, Keith Behrman, Canada, English, CC not available, 93 min, R)

“Finally, a film about teenage sexuality and its inherent fluidity that has something authentic and intelligent to say.” — Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star

“Behrman has crafted a classic high school tale of outsiders finding themselves … The images are sumptuously saturated and gorgeously crafted, and the soundtrack thrums and whines with anxiety and racing pulse.” — Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

“[An] emotionally honest and heartfelt look at figuring out one’s path through the difficult journey of adolescence.” — Adam Graham, Detroit News
