Movie Info

A boy has to decide just how far he's willing to go to maintain a new friendship in this offbeat coming of age-drama. Billy (Andrew Paterson) is a 12-year-old boy growing up in a farming community in New Zealand in the '70s. Billy's slight weight problem, his flamboyant personality, and his fondness for costume play has made him a target for bullies at his one-room school, and his only friend is Lou (Harriet Beattie), his tomboy cousin who prefers to play football with the boys and is dreading

The movie's insistently playful tone and cheesy fantasy sequences ultimately work against its ambitions, undermining a story that seethes with abuse and sexual obsession.

Main tries to put messages into the film, lessons like to not believe in gender stereotypes. But his people seem to be taken more from wishful thinking than from the real world.

New Zealand writer-director Stewart Main's adaptation of Graeme Aitken's 1995 novel is a cheery, at times fanciful tale of a chubby New Zealand farmer's son growing up in remote Central Otago and coming to terms with his feelings for other men.

Young lead Andrew Paterson is so likeable that the film occasionally threatens to be affecting, but a series of strenuously melodramatic developments late in the game kept us detached and unimpressed.
