BOY

SBS ONE, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

A UNIQUE com­ing- of- age af­fair, Boy re­cently be­came New Zealand’s high­est- gross­ing lo­cal pro­duc­tion of all- time. Writer- di­rec­tor Taika Waititi stars as an ab­sen­tee fa­ther who re­turns home to sup­pos­edly spend some “qual­ity time” with his young sons, but noth­ing could be fur­ther from the truth. Though this fool­ish fel­low is very much a fig­ure of fun through­out the movie, the lack of con­nec­tion with his sons gives this story great heart and sub­tle sor­row.
