Synopsis

Set on the east coast of New Zealand in 1984, Boy, an 11-year-old child and devout Michael Jackson fan, gets a chance to know his absentee criminal father, who has returned to find a bag of money he buried years ago.

Our take

Before Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit, Oscar winner Taika Waititi directed this big-hearted coming-of-age story. Set in his native New Zealand, the film became the country’s highest-grossing local production while gathering attention abroad for its charm and tender depiction of adolescence.
