Boy Lisa'S REVIEW


Simple, funny, perfect


A truly perfect, subtledly funny, unique view of life in NZ in the 1980's, when Michael Jackson was hero, kids hung out at the dairy, tattoos done in marker pen were the best thing EVER, and goats and old cars were the next best thing to having a best friend and a corvette. Don't expect belly-laugh humour, dramatic car chases, or stomping Orcs done in expensive wide-screen formats. This movie IS what it IS. It treats every moment, and person, with the respect they so need. Yes, even Boy's dad (Taika Waititi). Brilliant.
