New Zealand, 1984. Michael Jackson is everywhere, and a young Maori lad (newcomer James Rolleston) is about to meet the father he barely remembers. Taika Waititi’s delicate character piece, Boy, captures the awkwardness of a family reunion with people you’re supposed to love, but barely know. It also features a fine performance from writer-director Waititi (whom you may have seen as a sheepish vampire in What We Do in the Shadows) as a shiftless father.
