  • While the story soft-pedals the brutal violence between the Tamil and Sinhalese people, the story of a privileged Tamil teen (Brandon Ingram) finding inner peace amid a world of conflict remains touching, tender and memorable.

  • "Funny Boy" is a luminous coming-of-age tale seen through the eyes of a relatable yet entirely unique experience.

  • Worst of all, it soft-sells the horror of ethnic cleansing, with a climactic neighbourhood massacre reduced to a few broken windows and some offensive chanting.

    December 11, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • "Funny Boy" makes the history accessible and relevant in our own incredibly polarized times.

  • Funny Boy falters when trying to link together the personal and political, making for a well-intentioned film that never delivers much depth.

    December 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Funny Boy" ambitiously braids internal and external conflict, familial and national strife, to engrossing if somewhat heavily condensed effect.
