You know when someone tells you you should go see this movie because it’s amaaaaazing, and it’s something you’ve never heard of before, so you’re like, “What? um, sure, let me put that on the ta-dah list” (which usually sees its light of day as “Oh right, I heard about that movie” during a conversation 5 years later). Well, I’m going to throw my 2 cents in your piggy bank of life and say go see BOY. It’s hilarious and impeccably charming, sweet, and all around special. And it won some awards, like from this little thing called Sundance, and kudos for best acting by a 6 year old while on roller skates, from this little thing called me. And you get New Zealand eye candy for scenery. And experience the most adorably charming set of actors I’ve seen in a film in a long time.
That said, it’s got the potential to be the next Napolean Dynamite/Slumdog Millionaire sleeper hit this side of the world. Fingers crossed 🙂
