Here we meet Boy, an 11-year-old who lives on a farm with his gran, a goat, and his younger brother, Rocky (who thinks he has magic powers). Shortly after Gran leaves for a week, Boy's father, Alamein, appears out of the blue. Having imagined a heroic version of his father during his absence, Boy comes face to face with the real version-an incompetent hoodlum who has returned to find a bag of money he buried years before.Boy featuring James Rolleston and Te Aho Aho Eketone-Whitu is streaming with subscription on Hoopla, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, free on VUDU, and 5 others. It's a comedy and drama movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.5 (24,603 votes).
