Boy (2010) Trailer
The trailer for Boy which will premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
Its 1984, and Michael Jackson is kingeven in Waihau Bay, New Zealand. Here we meet Boy, an 11-year-old who lives on a farm with his gran, a goat, and his younger brother, Rocky (who thinks he has magic powers). Shortly after Gran leaves for a week, Boys father, Alamein, appears out of the blue. Having imagined a heroic version of his father during his absence, Boy comes face to face with the real versionan incompetent hoodlum who has returned to find a bag of money he buried years before. This is where the goat enters.
Inspired by his Oscar-nominated short, Two Cars, One Night, Taika Waititi offers a charming, funny, and earnest coming-of-age story where everybody has some coming of age to doparticularly Alamein (affably played by Waititi himself). Never short on humor, Waititis story is ultimately about three boys (one grown) reconciling fantasy with reality.
