This is not my first choice when selecting a movie and I honestly purchased it because it was a super deal and on the cover it featured (heartthrob) Ryan Phillipe (more famous for his roles in the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" series and "54").  This is an unusual and troubling film.   The story is set in modern day rural Texas.  It follows the very dysfunctional lives of the West family.  Mom & Dad own and operate a small town bar.  The family history is deep and haunting and the movie leaves you in shadows as you try to piece together this emotional drama.  If I told you too many secrets, it would take away from the suspense and surprise of the movie.  I will say it is quite violent and/or sexual at times and it does not end on a happy "Brady Bunch" style note.   The story and acting is good, but the plot and suspense is excellent.  Hence I rated the film a 4.  It won several awards at smaller film festivals.  Although I have not seen "American Beauty" yet, I am thinking "Little Boy Blue" is somewhat similar in it's dysfunction, only "American Beauty" had more money to throw at the film.  Isn't Hollywood great?  "Little Boy Blue" also stars Nastassja Kinski and features 2 fine young actors playing the part of Jimmy's (Ryan Phillipe) siblings.   What is most disturbing about this movie, is that it could be based on a true story of dysfunction in America.

Whoa! Who is this Michael Boston guy? What an incredible writer! Sure, Ryan Phillipee is so watchable but geez, why don't we see him in more films like this? A great film!
LBB will go down like "Badlands", "The Last Picture Show", "Blue Velvet" and if this film finds an audience someday, "American History X".
"Little Boy Blue" entrances you from the get-go. I'm so glad I came across it at the video store!! (Ryan's picture on the cover helped), but damn... I mean, damn... what a story! I now have a new appreciation for little indie films. "Little Boy Blue" is da bomb!
It is so cool as a film student to be inspired, which is rare, but this film did it for me.
Rent it, I strongly suggest. You'll want to rent it again... like I did!
I hope Boston and Phillippe get together again!
Oh, those kids were adorable, too!!!

This movie is not Hitchcock, but it is really good filmmaking. I loved the twist at the end and the acting was really well done - not great - but well done. Ryan Phillipe is really talented and I thought he gave a very good performance, in a difficult role. I have recommended this film to many of my friends.

Not to downplay the greatness of this film, as it truly is an amazing (though disturbing) movie, but I felt a short review on Phillipe's performance was in order.
Ryan Phillipe is most popularly known as the heartthrob character from I Know What You Did Last Summer, 54, and especially Cruel Intentions. When watching this movie I was particularly impressed by Phillipe as I feel this is his break-through role. Many of the characters he plays express similiar emotions and demeanor, but this one is far far different. If you have doubted Phillipe's acting talent at any time, this is a movie to see.

I won't expand on the story or the intense nature of this film, as other reviewers have done a good job in this regard.

The actors in the movie are great, especially the two kids.

The movie is disturbing, but it's worth watching to see great acting, an interesting story line, and a true thriller.

Like many movies, it shows a darker side of Texas, though it could have been filmed/portrayed in many rural communities of the U.S.

The movie really took me by surprise. I was not expecting the byzantine plot at all. Amazing. It should be no surprise that Nastassja Kinski is one of the best and under-rated actresses in films today. This movie gives her a little more of a challenge than some of the roles she's been taking lately. Ryan Phillipe: this is the first film I'd ever seen him in, and his haunting looks matched Nastassja's. Great, all the way around.

2006 Comment: Finally available on DVD in the US! However, read comments below.

1999 review: The bleak Texas landscape is as much an actor in the movie as the cast. As I watched Ryan Phillippe act his part I could not help but think that I was seeing a new James Dean. Too bad his part in "54" was rewritten so badly. I would have liked to see what he could have done with it after seeing him here. But the real stars here are the boys who play his brothers. Where did they find such believable youngsters? This is a movie to watch again and again, even if you are haunted by each viewing!

2006: Comment on the U.S. DVD: The DVD as released in the U.S. has been re-framed from the VHS and without a lot of care for the content. In a powerful scene where Ryan Phillippe is walking away into the darkness "naked" and humiliated, carrying his clothes in his arms, the top edge of the waistband of some shorts he was actually wearing in the scene which were outside the frame are now visible in the frame. In the VHS version you believed he was naked and humiliated. Now you know he wasn't there but then is in the distant shot that follows. Bad move! While it is great to have the film on a domestic CD -- it was available under the title Wait Until Dawn as a Region 2 German DVD -- greater care should have been taken with this release.

Still one of the best things Mr. Phillippe, or anyone else, has done. Great role, terrific performance!
