Movie Info

Thomas Webb (Callum Turner), the son of a publisher and his artistic wife, has just graduated from college and is trying to find his place in the world. Moving from his parents' Upper West Side apartment to the Lower East Side, he befriends his neighbor W.F. (Jeff Bridges), a shambling alcoholic writer who dispenses worldly wisdom alongside healthy shots of whiskey. Thomas' world begins to shift when he discovers that his long-married father (Pierce Brosnan) is having an affair with a seductive younger woman (Kate Beckinsale). Determined to break up the relationship, Thomas ends up sleeping with his father's mistress, launching a chain of events that will change everything he thinks he knows about himself and his family.

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (19)

[Pierce] Brosnan is especially good: he's been chasing critical respect ever since he signed off as James Bond.

The story proceeds ever so tastefully but nowhere notably interesting.

The major culprit in the picture is screenwriter Allan Loeb (Here Comes the Boom, Collateral Beauty) a once and future Happy Madison gagman who wants nothing more than to be the next Woody Allen.

August 17, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

No one is more irritating than the person eager to tell you that things aren't as good as they used to be - except for the person who wasn't around during that supposed golden age to begin with.

August 17, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Think of "Boy" as a Bridges highlight reel and Gotham travelogue, instead of precious coming-of-age story, and it's not half bad. But it isn't, so it is.

August 17, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

[A] twee, turgid drama set in an uptown fantasyland version of Manhattan.
