Boy ★★★★½

“Think you can handle having The Incredible Hulk for a dad?”

I’ve always thought drama works best when it’s used as a reprieve from comedy– nothing makes an emotional moment hit harder than having it come when you’ve opened your heart expecting warmth and laughter, and this movie is proof of that. It’s beautiful, nostalgic, wondrous, fun, and funny until it makes you settle into the reality of its characters and breaks your heart. I love this movie so much. Taika Waititi is a gem.
