Boy

Boy

Directed by Taika Waititi

During summer break in 1984, eleven-year-old Michael Jackson fanatic 'Boy' has the adventure of his life. With his mother dead and father AWoL, Boy becomes the head of a household full of kids when his Nana leaves town for a funeral. It starts as just another few weeks of fruitless pining for classmate beauty Chardonnay, but then his Dad rolls up in a vintage car with his Crazy Horses gang, and Boy's life turns upside down.

A bittersweet story that captures a child’s-eye view of 1984 New Zealand and the treasure hunt a boy and his estranged father undertake.
