A confident debut with a gorgeous central performance.

Time Out

Joe Stephenson's critically acclaimed film about two teenage brothers holed up in a knackered caravan. One has learning difficulties, the other has anger issues, and their muddled lives become even more mixed up with the arrival of an attractive new neighbour.

Based on Freddie Machin’s acclaimed play, UK director Joe Stephenson’s debut feature is both tough and bleak, but teases out the lyricism and optimism in the source material, bringing a distinctive visual sensibility to the film’s remote settings.

Unfortunately filmmaker Joe Stephenson is unable to attend our screening of Chicken. Joe has provided us with some answers to our questions and they will be handed out at the screening.
