Still image from the film Boy

It’s 1984.  Eleven-year old Boy lives with his brother Rocky, his grandmother and cousins in rural New Zealand.  Boy has an overactive imagination and is a huge Michael Jackson fan.  When Boy’s father Alamein (played by Waititi) comes back to town after an extended absence, hijinks ensue.  Alamein is nothing like Boy imagined.  A box-office hit in New Zealand, Taika Waititi’s (Te Whanau-a-Apanui) second feature is a delightfully quirky coming of age story.
