Critic Reviews of "The Selfish Giant"Detroit NewsFebruary 19, 2014
"The Selfish Giant" is a story of dependence, damage and desperation, told with grit and grimy frankness. It's also a portrait of friendship born of need and emptiness, on the road to nowhere.Toronto StarJanuary 23, 2014
Clio Barnard's The Selfish Giant isn't the Oscar Wilde children's story, but more an inspired take on it in the kitchen-sink style of a Ken Loach drama.Seattle TimesJanuary 16, 2014
Ultimately, it's a sad, tough sit - but worth seeing for its gritty honesty and strong cast.New YorkerJanuary 13, 2014
Much of the movie is hard to bear, yet it never drags, thanks to the momentum that Barnard finds in the fable, and, above all, to the energy that she unleashes in her young leads.Chicago ReaderJanuary 09, 2014
[A] wrenching story of working-poor desperation in northern England.The New RepublicJanuary 03, 2014
The Selfish Giant is a film of such power and beauty that there will be no escaping it -- so long as you go to see it in the first place.The Film StageJune 21, 2016
Barnard bolsters this central friendship and subsequent unwitting rivalry with myriad background details to flesh out their world and expose how dire circumstances are.Little White LiesAugust 18, 2015
Though they share the same title, director Clio Barnard's bewitching follow-up to The Arbor bears little cosmetic similarity to the fluorescent idyll of Oscar Wilde's 19th century children's fable.Birmingham MailOctober 10, 2014
Writer-director Clio Barnard directs with ferocious maturity, galvanising "scrap" pieces of everyday life into a wonderfully cinematic whole.The AustralianAugust 11, 2014
Barnard's film is charged with the same compassion and lyricism. It is one of those desperately sad and dispiriting films that one would prefer to forget but probably never will.ABC Radio (Australia)August 06, 2014
There is a plot (adapted from Oscar Wilde's famous short story of the same name), and it's a good one, but ... most important are Arbor and Swifty, played to pure perfection by little Connor Chapman and big Shaun Thomas.Concrete PlaygroundAugust 04, 2014
The Selfish Giant is one of the best films of the year: captivating, often funny, and filled with the most naturalistic performances you're likely to see.
