Boy was one of my favorite movies up at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010. It was directed by Taika Waititi who is the same filmmaker that brought us the great little film called Eagle Vs. Shark. Boy is a very funny and extremely heart warming story. I loved the story, and the many characters that the audience is introduced to are so rich and full of life and color that you can’t help but love watching them unfold the story that Waititi is telling. I can't say enough good things about it. You can read my full review for the film Right Here.
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.
