Boy

Featuring probably the best goat performance and certainly the best ensemble moonwalk in our 2010 programme, New Zealand's second biggest-ever movie is riotous fun; and a stirring portrait of children dealing with extremes. Bright-eyed 11-year-old Boy loves no-one more than Michael Jackson - until his much-mythologised, dad returns home from a long absence. Much male bonding follows; but is his father really such a heroic figure... ?

March 30, 2012 - Boston.com - By Ty Burr, Globe Staff

There are two coming-of-age movies about boys coping with flawed fathers that open in the Boston area today. “The Kid With a Bike,’’ from Belgium’s Dardenne brothers, is cool, calm, observant, and heartbreaking. “Boy’’ is everything that film is not: hyper-stylized, funny, a crowd-pleaser, and ultimately the lesser emotional journey. You could do worse than drag your teenagers to see it.
