With James Rolleston, Te Aho Eketone-Whitu, Taika Waititi. It’s 1984, and Michael Jackson is king—even in Waihau Bay, New Zealand. Here we meet Boy, an 11-year-old who lives on a farm with his gran, a goat, and his younger brother. Shortly after Gran leaves for a week, Boy’s father appears out of the blue after many years away. Boy and his little brother Rocky must now reconcile reality with the fantasy dad of their imaginations.
