MOVIE SYNOPSIS
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... ?
