Storyline

Actress-Director Soleil Moon Frye's second work "Sonny Boy" focuses on her often troubled relationship with her father actor Virgil Frye who suffers on Alzheimer's disease. From the beginning of his career as a makeup artist on the set of Easy Rider, his work as a Elvis Presley double in New Orleans and his political support for the civil rights in Alabama to his work on the cornfields in Iowa and his Golden Gloves boxing championship Frye accompanies her father to re experience their past on a journey through the states. The longer their trip lasts, the more Mr. Frye's disease seems to worsen. Therefore it gets more and more difficult for both of them to cope with their lives and memories. Written by idler

A must see.
3 October 2004 | by (San Diego, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw Sonny Boy last night at the San Diego Film Festival with director Soleil Moon Frye in attendance. She presented to the audience a wonderful, warm and loving film about her father, character actor Virgil Frye, and her relationship with him. A brutally honest look at Alzheimer's, Frye does not hold back any emotion in the film. Well done, with beautiful camera work and a perfect music to accompany it(particularly the final song during the credits).

The film does not have a distributor yet, but this is a film that needs to be seen. Congratulations to Frye for allowing us to see this moving film.
