In a retrospective scene young Eric and his friend Philip are walking around impersonating Spider-Man shooting web and swinging along the street. Andrew Garfield, the actor playing old Eric/ Jack, is Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012). See more »
Since the very beginning of the movie, I have been touched by Andrew Garfield's actor's game: he performs a very endearing character. In addition to that he is really handsome! His performance touched me deep inside because of the lot of emotion it conveys. This film perfectly shows that it is very difficult to forget our past, especially when our past is a troubled one. The sentence "you can run away from your past but your past can't run away from you" is a very beautiful one and perfectly defines the spirit of this film.
From my point of view, this film is perfect; it is one of the best movies I have ever seen! It is flawless in everything: good plot, good actors and actresses, good director, etc. That is why I praised this film to all my family and all my friends. Even if after watching the movie I felt very sad.
I hate the part when Jack is dancing in a schizophrenic way. I think it is weird and disappointing to see him like that even if it emphasizes the fact that this boy feels very bad. Personally I think this scene is very thought-provoking, perhaps it is just a way to keep my good opinion about Jack...
I like Jack's love story with Michelle: they are so cute. I think there is so much tenderness between them. This love story puts the stress on the fact that Jack really wants to build up a new life and readjust to society. This film deals with the truth too. Are we supposed to say everything to our friends or is sometimes lying good? It is a good question! However, I was very disappointed by the end of the movie. I can't understand why Jack commits suicide because I wanted a good ending for him! I think he has paid enough for his crime. But no one can stop him from feeling guilty all his life... Nonetheless his suicide puts the stress on the fact he has no choice and it makes this film very emotional.
All these elements make me think that Boy A is a stunning achievement and a moving gem!
