A young Brooklyn boy witnesses the brutal murder of his mother and grows up obsessed with finding her killer. Thus begins his life as a quiet, straight-A student by day and a self-appointed hero at night. But what is a real hero? And who decides what is right or wrong? As the boundaries blur, Sean's dual life wears on his psyche and his two worlds careen dangerously close to colliding. Like a graphic novel you can't put down, Boy Wonder challenges morality, distorting perceptions of what is right and what is justified, as it races to its shocking conclusion. Written by Michael Morissey

Did You Know?


[first lines]
Young Sean: Who wrote that one?
Mary Donovan: Bach. Johann Sebastian Bach.
Young Sean: I think that's the best.
Mary Donovan: Well, I don't know if there's a best. Music is subjective, it's different for every one. When I hear Mozart, I feel... out of breath, dizzy, overwhelmed. When I hear Bach, it's more like a good movie. What about you, what do you feel when you hear Bach?

Couldn't help myself
25 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am something of a film festival nerd. I saw Boy Wonder screen at the Sedona Film festival and was impressed with the film there. I knew there was something to be said for the crazy fight scenes and realistic nature of it all. I was in Chicago visiting friends this past weekend and they wanted to go to the C2E2 thing there for the day...and of course knowing it was going on while I was in town meant that we were for sure gonna go. I stumbled upon the Boy Wonder booth and realized that I was going not only get to see the movie again but that I could give my friends the pleasure of seeing it as well. Being in the comic book environment almost gave this film a whole new meaning. The audience was just as impressed with the realness of the film as I was. I've been waiting for someone to do a film like this for a long that stays true to what comic books are really about. While I didn't get into Teresa Ames too much the character of Sean blew me away even the second time around. This movie is legit and not legit like Hollywood put a bunch of money into something and marketed the hell out of it..its legit like had a low budget made a good looking film and has quality story and characters. If you get a chance see this movie when it comes near you your time wont be wasted..even if you are one of those only see movies with major players in it kind of should go anyway..expand your horizons. Anyway I usually don't take the time to write reviews but when a good indie film comes around and I think people should know about it...I give up some of my time for the cause.
