It's 1984, and Michael Jackson is king-even in Waihau Bay, New Zealand. Here we meet Boy, an 11-year-old who lives on a farm with his gran, a goat, and his younger brother, Rocky (who thinks he has magic powers). Shortly after Gran leaves for a week, Boy's father, Alamein, appears out of the blue. Having imagined a heroic version of his father during his absence, Boy comes face to face with the real version-an incompetent hoodlum who has returned to find a bag of money he buried years before. This is where the goat enters. Written by

The story takes place in 1984 with a month ending in 'ber' ( i.e. September, October, November or December) according to what is written on the classroom blackboard. Boy says that his brother Rocky is six years old. Their mother Joanie died while giving birth to Rocky. According to Joanie's tombstone, she died in April, 1977.

There are very few movies coming out of NZ that are memorable at all, and stumbling upon such a gem is quite a rarity!
I rarely take time to write reviews, but I felt that this movies deserves one:)
There is hardly any fault in this movie from direction and acting perspective, although I have to reckon I have never heard of anyone from the main movie credits... Combining unknown actors with a very simple script is a recipe for disaster, in general,BUT not in this film. I think the charm of the movie comes from kids that are playing their roles just perfect:innocent but responsible when need it.
The last scene of the movie makes you feel that you've just experienced something unique that comes on the screen once in 10 years!
If you manage to get the DVD, invite some friends over and have an '80 night at the movies: all of them they'll feel happy at the end!
