Mini Review - Boy

Boy (out Aug 26) topped the box-office in New Zealand for an incredible 4 weeks and is now getting an Oz release. It's about an 11 y/o who lives with his grandmother but has his world flipped upside down when his father reappears after a long absence. This has a nice mix of comedy (in the early stages) and drama (in the later stages). A real crowd pleaser. Grade: A-.
