Sleeping Giant

by Andrew Cividino Feature Film Competition

Just like every other year, 15-year-old Adam is spending his summer vacation with his parents on rugged Lake Superior. Unlike every other year, the introverted redhead befriends Nate and Riley, two smart aleck cousins from underprivileged families. Adam soon enters an exciting new world of reckless dares, pot smoking and shoplifting. But a series of events not only puts the bourgeois holiday routine of Adam’s family to the test, but also his fragile newfound friendship with the two boys. Director Andrew Cividino’s debut feature examines the wit and charm of pubescent boys and serves us a toxic adolescent cocktail of naivety, immaturity, rivalry, jealousy, low self- esteem and heedless irresponsibility. A bleak coming-of-ager for teens and adults alike.
