Taika Waititi’s (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, What We Do in the Shadows) sublime coming-of-age film finally gets a UK release!
Set in New Zealand in 1984, 11 year old Boy (Rolleston) spends his time day-dreaming about Michael Jackson, and trying to impress local girl Chardonnay.
When his estranged father Alamein returns and begins to dig on their land for “treasure”, Boy is forced to consider the fact that maybe the man he thought was a hero, is not that great after all.
