Rating - 7
The Giants is a coming of age film that leads with natural, character-driven humour and does so very well. And as you'd expect, with enough drama to make it well-rounded.
It gave me the usual headache - is it a 7 or has it reached up slightly higher, and grabbed onto the edge of an 8.
Ultimately, it didn't quite get there. In part, this might be down to a mildly underwhelming ending coupled with its short runtime.
At 80 which includes 5 minutes of credits, I felt like there was room for more.
Can't fault much else. The acting - superb. Each lead has enough screen presence to hold their own. And as a trio they're impossible not to like.
I laughed throughout this film and highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a feel-good watch.
