Boy

A film by Taika Waititi

It`s 1984, and Michael Jackson is king-even in Waihau Bay, New Zealand. Here we meet Boy, an 11-year-old who lives on a farm with his gran, a goat, and his younger brother, Rocky (who thinks he has magic powers). Shortly after Gran leaves for a week, Boy`s father, Alamein, appears out of the blue. Having imagined a heroic version of his father during his absence, Boy comes face to face with the real version-an incompetent hoodlum who has returned to find a bag of money he buried years before. This is where the goat enters. Inspired by his Oscar-nominated short, Two Cars, One Night, Taika Waititi offers a charming. funny, and earnest coming-of-age story where everybody has some coming of age to do-particularly Alamein (affably played by Waititi himself). Never short on humor, Waititi`s story is ultimately about three boys (one grown) reconciling fantasy with reality. Courtesy: Mongrel MediaOfficial Trailer
