I Kill Giants

A young misfit escapes into a fantasy world of magic and monsters in Oscar-winning short film director Anders Walter's feature debut.

"Life is not easy for our young heroine, Barbara Thorson (Madison Wolfe, The Conjuring 2). Defiant, precocious, outspoken, and a loner, Barbara relates more to the make-believe world of Dungeons & Dragons. At home, she makes life difficult for her older sister, Karen (Imogen Poots, Green Room), who is responsible for taking care of her and her brother. At school, psychologist Mrs. Mollé (Zoe Saldana) takes an interest in Barbara's increasingly worrisome behaviour. As she deals with loss and bullying, Barbara's imagined life begins spilling into her real one and she becomes obsessed with what she sees as her quest: killing giants. It's only when she's forced to face the truth and overcome her fears that Barbara is able to confront her demons." (Toronto International Film Festival)

I Kill Giants feels secret and dangerous, like a VHS tape dug out of a dusty crate at a yard sale; it's the kind of movie you ended up watching every week as a kid just because of how weird it made you feel.

This intimate story about a troubled 12-year-old who's on a mission to save her town is virtually tone perfect.

There should be a separate genre heading for this film: time-wasting droopy fantasy.

In the vein of self-important whimsy, Anders Walter's I Kill Giants is about the worst thing I've seen since J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls, which it closely resembles.

A sweetly imaginative, tenderly played coming of age drama.

Like its heroine, I Kill Giants isn't afraid to tackle the darkness or rage of little girls, or their fear and pain.

A sensitive and attractive, if not wholly convincing, pairing of fantasy with real-life turmoil.

...a sweetly intentioned film, beautifully shot and with a strong lead performance from Madison Wolfe...
