Movie Info

Kiefer Sutherland won a Genie Award for his performance in Bay Boy. In 1937 Nova Scotia, Donald Campbell (Sutherland) lives with his dirt-poor parents (Liv Ullmann and Peter Donat). His folks hope that Donald will enter the priesthood, but he isn't keen on this. For one thing, he harbors "unnatural" feelings towards a nun; for another, one of the local priests has made sexual advances towards him. Donald prefers to spend his time with pretty sisters Saxon and Dianna (Leah Pinsent and Jane

Audience Reviews for The Bay Boy

I enjoyed this movie. Kiefer Sutherland plays a boy growing up in Maritime Canada. The Bay boy goes through one crisis after another -- from an invalid brother, the death of a sister, advances by the town slut, advances by a priest, what to do when he witnesses his neighbour murdering an elderly couple, etc.
