Boy A director John Crowley followed up that award-winning film festival favorite with this eerie yet eloquent drama concerning a young boy fascinated by death due to the fact that he lives in the hospice home for the elderly that’s owned by his parents.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Edward (Bill Milner), un niño con una gran curiosidad por si hay vida después de la muerte, aprenderá algo sobre el sentido de la vida y el significado de la muerte, gracias a una amistad que establece con un anciano mago (Michael Caine). Caine y Milner consiguen una buena química, con momentos tensos, entrañables y otros con encanto, aunque la historia no consigue estar del todo a la misma altura.
It's not the easiest story to watch for me, seeing old folks fade away, reminding me of how we cannot escape death and time. Michael Caine's performance with Bill Milner makes it all worthwhile. I seem to feel there is lack of depth in their relationship, and I feel like the movie has pretty much dragged its way to its ending. Regardless, the thoughts this can bring about for you is nonetheless quite rewarding.
