About the movie

image7.5/10 image 88/100

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.

A beautiful coming of age story told through the eyes of "Boy", a Maori 11-year old who is eager to grow up and be just like his dad (who Waititi plays with comedic precision). It's funny and charming but packs a punch with emotion.

A beautiful film with so much heart. Waititi's tendency to write films from the perspective of children is beautiful to see and we writes them so well by managing to write dialogue that feels simultaneously so authentic but interesting.
