Poster for Boy A
About a young man who has grown up in detention after committing an appalling crime as a child. Setting out at 25 to begin rehabilitated life, he faces myriad challenges in relating to the world through an assumed identity. "Jack" craves the one thing his proud and solicitous case worker (Peter Mullan) warns him he can never have: total acceptance. As he falls in love with the brash Michelle, his desire for honesty becomes more and more unnerving. Meanwhile, images from the past flood the tabloids that bay daily for Boy A's life-long incarceration. [NZFF08] More
