Boy ★★★★★

My heart! Inject this shit straight into my veins. I want to exist in a perpetual state of watching this movie. For those who haven’t seen Hunt for the Wilderpeople or Jojo Rabbit, Waititi is particularly adept at crafting stories around young male protagonists and Boy really scratches that itch. He has concocted a most earnest, delightful, & touching film that illuminates the disillusionment of a preteen boy reuniting with his absentee father, all against the breathtaking backdrop of 1984 rural New Zealand.
