The line producer was Paul Ritchie (Slumdog Millionaire, Bend It Like Beckham). It was the first film of Director of Photography Robbie Ryan (Fish Tank, Wuthering Heights) and Editor Eddie Hamilton (Kick Ass, X-Men: First Class). It was also Edgar's feature film debut.

Release

Large premiered at the Cannes Film Festival market in May 2001 and was sold for distribution in Spain, France, Germany, Australia and other major territories. It was released on 5 October 2001 (UK) by Pathé.

Reception

The film attracted generally positive reviews with Sight and Sound praising the film's humour and Edgar's magpie sensibilities and energy. Large was considered a flop on its cinema release but had a highly successful home entertainment release, selling over 30,000 DVDs for distributor Pathé and entering the UK video charts at number 10.
