About A Boy
Goes well with a big bowl of popcorn on the side - Elaine Deely *e*
A delightful story of a young boy, shy and an outcast at school, feels he has to take care of his Mother who suffers from depression. By chance, he meets and bonds with a mid-thirties man (Hugh Grant) who acts like a child himself, unemployed all his life and lounging around on his sofa watching tv all day. The two have an extraordinary and unexpected bond, which comes as a shock to Grant, and unbeknownst to them both, this connection has a profound impact on both their lives. Some very funny and embarrassing incidents to keep you amused throughout. A great film for a girls night in, perfect for easy viewing.
