Win Chicken on DVD


Preview by Jack Foley

NETWORK Distributing is proud to announce that it will be releasing the critically acclaimed feature debut film Chicken from writer/director Joe Stephenson from September 18, 2017, on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK and Ireland.

Chicken won the Grand Jury Award at the New Hampshire International Film Festival, Best Film at Cine A La Vista International Film Festival, 2nd Prize at Giffoni International Film Festival and a Special Critics Circle mention for Scott Chambers at the Dublin International Film Festival.

The DVD and Blu-ray will feature special extras including special Sir Ian McKellen interviews with Scott Chambers, additional auditions and performances from the lead actors, phone videos, full score and a behind the scenes gallery.


Chambers plays Richard, a fifteen-year-old boy with learning difficulties who lives in a shabby caravan with his older brother, Polly (Watkins). Life for Richard 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 friendship with rebellious seventeen-year-old Annabel (Paige), 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.

Chicken is available on DVD & Blu-ray from September 18, 2017. Buy it
