I can't wait to see Taika Waititi's new movie BOY. Set on the rural East Coast of New Zealand, in the year of 1984, Boy is a heart-felt (and hilarious) coming-of-age story.A dreamer who loves Michael Jackson, Boy lives with his brother Rocky, a tribe of deserted cousins and his Nan.  Boy's other hero, his father, Alamein, is the subject of Boy's fantasies, and he imagines him as a deep sea diver, war hero and a close relation of Michael Jackson (he can even dance like him). In reality Alamein is in prison for robbery. When Alamein returns home after seven years away, Boy is forced to confront the man he thought he remembered, find his own potential and learn to get along without the hero he had been hoping for.

    Annie, I just wanted to say thank you from the depths of my heart for your comments on my post about Jack. You are so right the more we are open about our wonderful quirky darlings the more we understand and accept. Thanks you.
