Chicken DVD


The powerful feature-film debut of acclaimed young director Joe Stephenson, this compelling coming-of-age drama builds upon on a remarkable central performance from newcomer Scott Chambers. Chambers plays Richard, a fifteen-year-old boy with learning difficulties who lives in a shabby caravan with his older brother, Polly. Life for the siblings is harsh, with the engaging, nature-loving teenager yearning for stability while frequently finding himself on the wrong side of his brother's destructive, often violent moods. Finding it easier to communicate with animals... none more so than his beloved hen, Fiona Richard nevertheless forms a strong friendship with rebellious seventeen-year-old Annabel, whose family have recently acquired the farmland on which the brothers live. But growing conflict with the new landowners will lead to a situation that severely tests Richard's natural optimism, as a world of privilege collides with the brothers' precarious, marginalised existence.

British drama from director Joe Stephenson. Scott Chambers stars as Richard, a young teen with learning difficulties, who lives in a small caravan with his restless and self-destructive older brother Polly (Morgan Watkins). When a new landowner buys the land the boys have been staying on, Polly decides it's time to move on and quickly finds work with a sleazy travelling fair. But after falling for the landowner's daughter Annabel (Yasmin Paige), Richard is desperate to stay, causing Polly's behaviour to become increasingly unpredictable and violent. The brothers' relationship is finally pushed to breaking point after a shocking family secret is revealed, forcing Richard into making some huge decisions which could change his life forever.
