The year is 1984, and on the rural East Coast of New Zealand “Thriller” is changing kids’ lives. Boy, a young dreamer obsessed with Michael Jackson, lives with his brother and cousins and dreams of his long-lost father, who was sent to prison for robbery not long after Boy was born. When his father returns home after seven years away, Boy is forced to confront the man he thought he remembered and learn to get along without the hero he had been hoping for. “Boy” is the hilarious and heartfelt coming-of-age tale about heroes, magic and Michael Jackson.

Critics Consensus: Boy possesses the offbeat charm associated with New Zealand film but is also fully capable of drawing the viewer in emotionally.
