Standing in the Shadows of Giants
About Standing in the Shadows of Giants
Little Episodes Productions presents a powerful true story where a woman looks back on her youth as a struggling actress in early ‘00s London. This is a comic retelling of minimum wage jobs and auditions for laxative adverts. Unprepared for the sudden success of her younger brother Carl Barât (traditionally the weed-smoking black sheep of the family), she’s forced to face her own failures. Dodging exes, a lecherous producer and a rehab admission, she finally arrives at the realisation she’s gay.
Lucie’s brother's NME award winning band, THE LIBERTINES were at the vanguard of the 00s indie music scene. 'Standing in the Shadows of Giants' features original music co-written with both Carl Barât and Peter Doherty. Written and performed by Lucie Barât, whose movie credits include 'Troy', 'In The Doghouse', 'Spotless', 'Entropy'.
