LOVE this movie!,

This review is from: Boy [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I absolutely adore this movie, and can watch it over and over again. It's such a sweet, funny story. The main character, Boy, age 11, worships his absentee father that he's glamorized in his mind (though he's actually in jail), and one day, ol' dad returns. Boy tries to be like his father and tries to impress him, and over time, slowly starts to see his father for who he really is - and that's a guy who's not so great after all. His younger brother, Rocky, is the sensitive, perceptive one, and he has a special little storyline that just makes me love him even more. I never expected to fall in love with a goat, either, but damnit if they don't make you love that animal! The entire movie takes place over a very short time frame (maybe a week?) and we get to see how much Boy changes over that time. I laughed, I cried, and I've watched it several times since I bought it (and have also made others watch it). At an hour and a half running time, it's an easy flick to fit in to even the busiest schedules. Highly recommend.
