Giant Little Ones trailer: Josh Wiggins comes to terms with his changing sexuality
Getting through your teenage years isn't easy at the best of times, what with peer pressure, becoming comfortable in your own skin and beginning to understand your sexuality identity. An new indie called Giant Little Ones looks more closely at the idea of fluid sexuality from the perspective of two best friends in high school, and how they deal with the overwhelming emotions that come with an unexpected moment of self-discovery. It's taken a while to find a home after playing at TIFF in 2018 and picking up strong reviews, but you can watch the trailer for Giant Little Ones above.
Franky Winter and Ballas Kohl 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.
Keith Behrman writes and directs, with the cast starring Josh Wiggins, Darren Mann and Taylor Hickson.
Giant Little Ones is available on digital download in the US on February 3. We're hoping it will make it to Amazon Prime in the UK later this year.
