Boy

You'll fall in love with the quirky and moving Boy, a hit coming-of-age comedy from New Zealand.

During summer break in 1984, eleven-year-old Michael Jackson fanatic "Boy" (James Rolleston) has the adventure of his life. With his mother dead and father AWOL, Boy becomes the head of a household full of kids when his Nana leaves town for a funeral. It starts as just another few weeks of fruitless pining for classmate beauty Chardonnay (Ricky Lee Waipuka-Russell), but when his Dad (writer-director Taika Waitti, Eagle Vs. Shark) rolls up in a vintage car with his Crazy Horses gang, and Boy's life turns upside down. There are treasure hunts, fistfights, and falling-outs, as Boy grapples to learn why is Dad left the family so long ago.

Waitti adopts a fanciful deadpan tone that's part Wes Anderson and part Flight Of The Conchords (for which Waitti directed), complete with child-like animations and hilarious re-enactments of Michael Jackson music videos. It's one of the most creative comedies you'll see all year.
