film synopsis

Handsome Franky (Josh Wiggins) is 17 and a popular competitor on his high school swim team. But in the aftermath of a confusing sexual encounter with his best friend Ballas after a drunken birthday celebration, he’s facing questions about his sexual identity that he might not be ready to answer. His confusion is compounded by the anger he feels toward his estranged father (Kyle MacLachlan), who left his marriage to live with a man. This sensitive and surprising coming-of-age drama is keenly attuned to the fluidity of teenage sexuality and the fears and excitements that go with it. Dealing with homophobia both internal and external, the story takes unfamiliar turns, as all of its wonderfully realized characters — gay, straight, trans and undecided — grapple with the roles the world wants them to play. A standout in Giant Little Ones’ large, talented cast is newcomer Wiggins, who seems destined for stardom.
