They share the same birth month, so the orphanage calls them December Boys. But these teens – Maps, Spit, Spark and Misty – have much more in common. With no hopes of ever joining a family, they form their own familial bonds. Then the unexpected news comes that a young couple may adopt one of them, and the long-time pals suddenly share something else: a rivalry to be the chosen one. December Boys, a poignant memoir of friendship and family, marks Daniel Radcliffe’s first major film role outside the Harry Potter series. He plays Maps, a big brother to the group as it stumbles and wavers its way toward manhood. Join the boys for their remarkable journey of the heart called growing up.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A coming-of-age tale so treacly it doesn't just tug your heartstrings, it attempts to glue them to your ribs.
Fresh: Enhanced by an exotic locale, the movie overcomes a well-trodden narrative path and unflinchingly brandishes its sentimentality as it stakes out its crowd-pleasing territory.
Fresh: December Boys bathes in the summer sun and sea breezes even as it exudes the energy of youth and promise.
Rotten: Juvenile viewers may well benefit from the movie. But, for the adult, it's ultimately a film that arrives too early for the season in its title and too late in terms of style and impact.
