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.

This movie is about a father who is a loser and treats his family with derision, especially when he is drunk. Later you notice that he is a very sexually frustrated man. John Savage, portraying the father did an excellent job. Ryan Phillippe, which I consider a very good actor, was the oldest son who had to deal with his father's rages, not only that, he had to commit a "sinful" act with the woman he considers his mother. He also has to protect his little brothers who later on he discovers are his sons-"what a life" . The woman who plays the role of his "mother" did a good job of portraying a woman married to a loser and a drunkard-even though he mistreats her, she loves him.
I liked the movie since it presented the subject matter of dysfunctional families with taste and tact. Also, the presentation of the supposed "sinful act' was presented with real tact. Very good movie.

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.

I hesitated for days in regards to renting this movie. I'm glad I did. The subject matter can be disturbing, but as another review said, it's done tastefully. I thought the acting was very good throughout the entire cast. Personally, I really liked the ending. Was not expecting that at all. I think it's definetly a good movie to rent.

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.

Most people probably will not like this movie, but I do recommend that it be seen at least once. If I have to compare it to another movie which will leave you feeling the same way/has the same vibe it would be along the lines "Things Behind the Sun". Neither one is going to be a 'feel-good-movie', but will leave a lasting impression on the viewer.

I had seen bits and pieces of this movie on television years ago, but ordered it because I like Nastassja Kinsk's performance in "Tess" and was curious about her other work.

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.
