BOYCHOIR——–a movie not to be missed

I shed a few tears , I smiled, I was amused by the adolescent  boys’ pranks and shenanigans and I was mesmerized by the  chorale performance by the  American Boychoir boarding School. Such talent! Their voices were angelic,  melodic and unbelievable.

This film written by Ben Ripley and directed by French Canadian Francois Girard, [directer of  the Red violin in 1988,]- was part of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. This is the story of Stet–a troubled, angry  and disadvantaged youth, alone in the world. His future probably would have been one of a life of crime and poverty had it not been for the intervention of his public school drama teacher, who was instrumental in having him accepted into  a boys singing academy. Stet was played by Garrett Wareing. This was the first movie role for this multi talented individual, whose family is also involved in the performing arts, His father and sister  appeared in the movie. Dustin Hoffman,    Kathy Bates and Debra Winger are part of this large cast of talented actors. In my opinion Garrett Wareing is destined to become a superstar. Be sure to see the movie . I don’t think you will be disappointed. The plot is somewhat predictable, but who cares?

  1. thanks so much for your review…I will make it a point to find it either in a theatre or perhaps via Rogers, we don’t have Netflicks here in Toronto…We will soon be going to the HOT DOCS Festival, we have 12 tickets…haven’t checked thoroughly as yet but hopefully we will have chosen at least two to see together. If you’ve never gone to this festival it worth checking it out. Have a look at their website.
