Boy is a movie from the Philippines. It’s an indie film about two boys who come together for a brief amount of time. It’s one of those movies that’s a slice of a person’s life. There is no neat as a bow happy ending or bad ending. That piece of their life is just over. There is some really bad poetry, and a lot of aquariums that are used as a metaphor for the two boys lives.
I didn’t hate the movie, although I found the beginning uncomfortable and hard to get through. I also didn’t love the movie, Boy was just there for me.
If you’re writing a book that takes place in the Philippines you might want to watch this simply for the look into the culture.
I couldn’t find a trailer that I could post, but you can watch it here if you want.
