So sad to see a small percentage of the reviews are filled with unhappy small minded people(EGGS) that just dont get growing up as a Maori or even a part Maori as they have never & will never experience that. So they put the race down & think it is always portrayed as poor. Many Maori & part Maori have grown up & had experiences like whats in the Boy movie & we wouldnt change one thing. Awesome memories. Never mattered if we had money or not as all that mattered was that we were happy & having fun/laugh. Awesome movie......loved it & it bought out the best in NZ film making. Kia Kaha
