Boy Plot

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.

Little Gem

This one of very few movies coming out of New Zealand that are memorable at all, and stumbling upon such a gem is quite a rarity!

This is a simple story of extremely poor, New Zealand village. The BOY is abput ten. His primary concern is how he appears to his mates and the local girls. Various comic devices set the tone before his father arrives back from prison. We then see some endearing shared fantasies, before Boy gets the truth about his Dad as selfishly irresponsible. The last scene of the movie makes you feel that you've just experienced something unique that comes on the screen once in 10 years!

Boy is a simple but emotionally powerful story...
