Critic Reviews for Giant Little Ones

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

Polished and lively, with just enough fresh angles to avoid feeling like a rote recycling of gay cinema tropes.

The film belongs to Wiggins, who brings an openness and sincerity to Franky's struggles that help suggest to what extent his character's specific story has elements that everybody will be able to relate to.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

[A] tender but untimid drama.

September 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

By intentionally withholding any concrete answers, Behrman lends [these kids'] adolescence an authenticity rarely seen.

November 8, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

As characters start letting their guard down, the film's cool sheen starts to ebb away and "Giant Little Ones" grows more intimate.

October 15, 2018 | Full Review…

[I]t feels built on the backs of its predecessors both straight and not.
