Boy, New Zealand, 2010

dir. Taika Waititi (87 mins., coming-of-age comedy)

Join us for our 15th annual program of cinema under the stars and city views. Doors open at 7 pm each night with food and beverages available for purchase. Music begins at 8 pm and films begin at dusk. Entry for advance ticket holders is guaranteed until 8:30 pm.

A coming-of-age comedy from the director of What We Do in the Shadows and Thor: Ragnarok, Boy takes place in 1984 New Zealand and follows 11-year-old Alamein, known as Boy by family and friends. Living with his younger brother, Ricky, and his grandmother, Boy spends his time obsessing over Michael Jackson, caring for his pet goat, and making up wildly fantastic stories about his estranged (bank robbing) father. When his grandmother leaves for a funeral in the city, Boy’s father and his gang, the Crazy Horses, make a sudden appearance looking for a buried “treasure” in the backyard. Boy is overjoyed to have his father back in his life, but finds that he does not live up to the stories Boy has always dreamed of. Even in Waititi’s sophomore film, his signature style of comedy grapples with darker topics of abandonment and loneliness in a genuine yet entertaining fashion that is endearing for all ages.
