Boy is Fraser's break out film.
17 January 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Having followed the director of this film - Glenn Fraser's work for some time, Boy is Fraser's break out film. The film tackles a subject in which most other filmmakers have feared to tread, with all the skill and confidence that I imagine a cinema master such as Scorsese would. Boy proves that Fraser is a filmmaker to watch, and that we will no doubt be watching his work on screen for a long time to come.
