Shy teenager Nathan and his family have moved from one town to another trying to escape the domestic disintegration within their own home. Roy and his family live a quiet life on a farm. When Nathan moves in next door to charismatic Roy, the boys strike up a friendship as high school study partners.

  • Pretty to look at but dismayingly obvious, as in the shot of a wall-mounted crucifix gazing sorrowfully down on an incestuous struggle.

  • The film evokes tension right from the start as the viewer waits for violence to rear its head; it eventually does, in ways expected and not.

  • While I'm generally over coming-of-age stories at my curmudgeonly middle age, I discovered "Dream Boy" to be surprising and genuinely affecting.
