Rod's Review of Boy

5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Outstanding little gem from NZ. Set in 1984 when Michael Jackson was king and E.T. was THE movie to see, the family portrait we peer into in this film is full of life and magic but not without it's skeletons. The humour and drama are perfectly balanced and the performances from the children (particularly the lead) are touching and brilliant. This will rate as one of the years best and leaves a memorable impression beyond it's 85min running time.
