Boy

New Zealand | 2010 | Taika Waiti

Boy

Audiences loved this funny, whimsical New Zealand coming-of-age story when we premiered it in June, so we’re bringing it back. Set in a rural village in eastern New Zealand in 1984, the movie focuses on an 11-year-old, Michael Jackson-loving Maori boy who lives with relatives while his dad is in prison. The boy worships his absent father, and casts him in fantastic daydreams as a versatile and charismatic hero. But when Dad (played by writer-director Taika Waiti) turns up out of the blue one day, childish imagination gives way to grown-up reality. This crowd-pleaser is the highest grossing Kiwi movie in New Zealand film history. See it and you’ll know why.
