5.0 out of 5 stars Tender tale of a lost boy and a lonely man June 27, 2009
By Hulka
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was an awesome movie! A positive uplifting story about a abandoned adolescent boy looking for a father who meets a man trying to forget the pain of his relationship with his own father. Nathan is a sexually confused boy desperately looking for security of a father figure. He runs into Boone, a hardened loner whom Nathan latches onto. We learn that Boone has some emotional father issues of his own, and Nathan shows up to provide him a way to work them out. In other words, Boone finds that he can resolve his own sadness at his father's lack of love by giving Nathan the love and security he needs. This is a low budget made-for-tv movie, but the unusual story line---and the heart rendering performance by Branden Nadon as Nathan---make this a must-see movie for anyone who has familiar with the sort of emotional wounds that too often occur between father and son. It brought tears to my eyes...and a good feeling at the happy ending. I agree--must see.

BTW, this is NOT a movie about boylove or child prostitution, this is really about the painful relationships between fathers and sons. The need for men to mentor their sons, and the need of an adolecent boy for a strong male role model. Nathan's involvement in sexual abuse is only important in the development of his character as a lost boy. It adds to the drama that Boone's interest in him was entirely non-sexual. Unfortunately, inclusion of these issues might have doomed this astounding movie to oblivion. That is really sad.

Struck by Brandon Nadon's performance, I immediately looked for more pictures by thim only to learn that Branden Nadon subsequent career was making some sleazy horror movies. So I guess he got typecast a little. Sad, he was a tremendous actor that deserved some better roles. See more of Nadon in a bit part in Living with the Dead, Taken and Masters of Horror. Hopefully we will see in some more challenging adult roles in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, honest, wonderful July 7, 2009
By ch15
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am from outside the US but bought this movie here - could not find it elsewhere. I don't understand why this film is hardly known. Of course, it is a low-budget production (but that does not affect its quality), of course, its theme might be critical and not mainstream. But neither is it about a gay, nor is it a movie just for pedophiles (though Nathan is a very likeable boy...).

It is about a poor boy (Nathan) who lost his parents and has to take care for himself. Nobody does really love him, so he is searching for true love (that is why he sells his body) - but they that "buy" him just do use him; it is not to love. On the road Nathan finds a man called Boone (great-acting Dylan Walsh) who takes him along, but isn't willing to care for that child in the long run. So one day he sends the boy away - who is then starting his old business again...

The story is so honest, so near to the poor life of those children who live on the streets - very emotional. The movie belongs to the best ones I've ever seen, and is worth the price (though there are no additional features on the DVD). 5***** for the producers and actors - esp. young Branden Nadon is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jet Boy April 29, 2009
Format:DVD
Jet Boy turned out to be a great movie. A beleveable story executed with some terrific acting. This is not a "gay" interest movie. The story would appeal to almost everybody. The main character is a ten year old prostitute but this just adds seasoning to the story line and is not the main entree. There were some surprises, twists and turns, near the end of the movie that will make it a keeper for your collection. Very much recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See! April 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Jet Boy deals with some very sensitive subjects. It does so with skillful honesty and without falling into stereotypes and melodramatic depictions. It is a real-life drama that convinces with its sincere authenticity and the profound quality of the interaction between the two leading characters.

The movie is set in Canada and shot in Vancouver, B.C., Calgary and Linden, Alberta, and the road between. The drama focuses on characters influenced by their cultural milieu and by each other. The movie has a simple story and is still complex in its plot development as well as in the pace of plot revelations. The audience never stops learning about the two main characters, their individual stories and their background, which provides the movie with tremendous quality and causes curiosity that makes the audience dive into the story and stay alert.

The main protagonist is Nathan, played by newcomer Branden Nadon. We are introduced to him as he sells his body on his 14th birthday. These very subtle scenes at the beginning make us aware of how desperate this young boy is. He is a hustler, but still a child. We get a very good impression of his life - a bleak, exploited life without much room for dreams and no way out. Then we are introduced to his family. He has no father and his mother is a drug addict. She dies right at the beginning due to an overdose, which leaves Nathan orphaned and totally isolated.

The second main character is a rough and mysterious man named Boon Palmer (played by Dylan Walsh of Nip Tuck), a man we do not know anything about. Apparently he has a questionable past as some kind of criminal. All we know is that he is up to something and violent if challenged.

It's a good little movie. I've seen better, but it's worth a watch. Though, I wouldn't put a lot of money into it.
