  • A film like this would have little chance without the right casting, and James Rolleston is so right as Boy, it's difficult to imagine anyone else. show more

  • Mr. Waititi, a popular standup comic in New Zealand, is wonderfully droll and entertaining in this acting role, which isn't all that far, geography and culture notwithstanding, from Steve Zahn at his stoner best. show more

  • Boy begins with an epigram from E.T.: "You could be happy here . . . . We could grow up together." That's what the film is about - finding happiness, growing up, feeling like a stranger in a strange world. show more
