The director John Crowley made a film about forgiveness in gloomy tones. The english rain accompanies the hero's attempt to create in 24 of the life it deserves. But how hard is for someone to finally accept the label of criminal we all put in for years and suddenly refused over who had used? The search for identity and role of the social environment in this is the same for the suffocating Eric an... read more

Emotionally-wrenching and perfectly executed, Boy A is the first truly great film to be released this year. Though it was released in the U.S. a few days ago, its first release was last year in the UK, and there's no surprise in the fact that it racked up four BAFTA awards, particularly in the case of lead actor Andrew Garfield, who gives a relentlessly flawless performance in this movie. It is ma... read more

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I thought I should check this one out. It stars 2 impressive performances by Peter Mullan (easily one of the most underrated actors at work nowadays) and Andrew Garfield (one of the most promising actors at work nowadays). They both shine here and I must say that the sober directing was really effective as well. It is definitely a gloomy and pessi... read more

Description: Jack has a terrible secret. He is really the notorious Boy A (Andrew Garfield) who committed a terrible crime when he was just a child. Recently released from a juvenile prison, he enters a world he has never been part of. He is haunted by his grim past, and is more a boy than a man at 24. His caseworker Terry (Peter Mullan) sees the ... (more)

"5.1 new Smartly directed movie with good performances by lead actors. In fact, Andrew Garfield was one reason why I wanted to watch this movie, after he performed well in Never Let Me Go and The Social Network too. Anyway I liked the (sad) atmosphere of movie and don't really have nothing to complain about. A good movie."

"Aikuistunut lapsena surmatyön tehnyt mies yrittää sopeutua jälleen yhteiskuntaan. Aihetta käsitellään ihan mukavasti, erityisesti päähenkilon tunteiden käsittelyn puolesta vaikka juonikuvio sinänsä on aika helposti arvattavissa. Tunnelmanluonti toimii ja teknisen toteutuksen kantavaksi teemaksi nostettu kuvaussääntöjen tarkoituksellinen rikkominen mm. kuvaamalla lähes järjestään henkiöt niin että tyhtää tilaa on kuvassa niskan, ei kasvojen puolella tekee tyylistä ainakin "

A very good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I thought I should check this one out.

They both shine here and I must say that the sober directing was really effective as well. It is definitely a gloomy and pessimist flick which shows that basically, there is no redemption for children killers. Actually, when you think about it, almost nobody would forgive anyone for sure a crime and that's maybe the weakest point of this movie. They show in details how twisted and damaged Philip was but Eric comes up as rather innocent and, in my opinion
