D Films and Get Reel Movies want to take readers and listeners to an advanced screening of Sleeping Giant! Screenings will be taking place in Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg on Thursday, April 21, 2016.
In an isolated cottage community, teenagers Nate, Riley and Adam while away the idle hours playing videogames, getting wasted, and generally engaging in dimwitted shit while their parents remain unreliable or just absent. The boys are a study in contrasts: loquacious Nate is the most overtly troubled of the group, often messing with people out of spite like some kind of pubescent Iago; his cousin Riley is more laid-back and socially adept; Adam is shy and overprotected. Enter Taylor, whose attraction to Riley infuriates both her old friend Adam and the territorial Nate, though not for the same reasons.
With its creeping atmosphere of both ennui and danger, 2014 TIFF Talent Lab alumnus Andrew Cividino’s film provides a whip-smart look at the emotional extremes of adolescence and their tragic potential, and is one of the most finely observed debuts to come from Canada in recent memory.
