Everything changes over a single summer for the kids in Sleeping Giant, a superb coming-of-age story set in Northern Ontario.

Top Critic

Not just the best Canadian movie of 2015, but one of the year's best films, period.

Dec 10, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Cividino creates a volatile, captivating and singular look at adolescence, wholly free of the sanitized antics of Hollywood.

Boys will be boys, yes, but Cividino doesn't romanticize them: They can be pretty toxic, too.

What's particularly admirable here is the way the cast and filmmakers illuminate not just the wit and charm of young men, but also the callow cruelty of youth.

Sleeping Giant draws the viewer in despite the bland subject matter, making every character intriguing and maintaining suspense and the feeling of impeding trouble perfectly.
