Excellent, beautiful little short
15 April 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have a hard time describing this short. It's a drama, it's beautifully shot, and the pacing is gentle. The acting is first-rate, even from the child actor, and the writing is pretty solid. Weaver creates a world for this child, a distant, alienated world where the child and audience feel one step away from everyone else. Don't let that interfere with your viewing, though --it's all part of Weaver's masterful direction. The cinematography is outstanding, with shadow, light, and colour combined to create a dreamy world for the boy's home, and bright, almost harsh lighting and colours for the scene at the boy's school. I recommend A Boy's Own Story if you get a chance to see it.
