During a lazy summer at a lakeside cottage with his parents, Adam’s (Jackson Martin) dull routine is shattered when he meets Riley (Reece Moffett) and Nate (Nick Serino), local trouble-making cousins who fight their boredom with debauchery and petty crime. What begins as a friendship will lead the boys to a powerful revelation that changes their lives forever.
Winner of the “Best Canadian First Feature Film” award at the Toronto Film Festival and an Official Selection of Cannes’ Critics Week, Sleeping Giant takes you on a majestic and haunting ride through the backwoods of a Canadian summer. With his feature-length debut, writer-director Andrew Cividino has crafted an exceptional coming-of-age pictures, an emotional journey of youthful liberation.
