Critic Reviews for Eastern Boys
Writer-director-editor Robin Campillo has crafted an unruly yet pointed drama that should intrigue patient viewers.
The movie argues that these teens' lawless, selfish mentality is a by-product of having grown up in war-stricken countries such as Chechnya, where they lived through horrors that permanently skewed their moral compasses.
Explores interlocking themes of sexuality, immigration and power dynamics with a cleareyed sensitivity and refuses to demonize even its shadiest characters.
By turns a frightening home-invasion drama, a tender love story and a tense hide-and-seek thriller, with far more control over these unsettling tonal slides than initially seems feasible.
Audience Reviews for Eastern Boys
What a pleasant surprise. I knew very little about EASTERN BOYS (poor/non-existent marketing). I just happened to be near the theatre (Laemmle North Hollywood, CA) and decided to check it out. Really excellent direction and outstanding performances. Not for all audiences...but count me as a big fan.
