Sleeping Giant 2 copy

Teenager Adam is spending his summer vacation with his parents on rugged Lake Superior. His dull routine is shattered when he befriends Riley and Nate, smart aleck cousins who pass their ample free time with wit, debauchery, and recklessness. The revelation of a hurtful secret triggers Adam to set in motion a series of irreversible events that will change the boys forever. Cividino conjures a vivid and emotionally rich universe filled with equal measures of euphoria and pain as his young protagonists grapple with friendship, betrayal, masculinity, perceptions of love and sexuality, and death. Best Canadian First Feature Film, Toronto International Film Festival. (89 mins.)
