Boy A In Theaters
"Boy A" is a powerful coming-of-age drama that raises difficult questions about the morals of our times. "Boy A" is a fictional story starring Andrew Garfield (Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle theatre awards winner 2006) as Jack. His involvement in the murder of another child means Jack, at 24, has spent most of his young life in juvenile prisons. Released from prison into an unrecognizable adult world, Jack is given a new name, new job, new home; a new life. But anonymity is both a blessing and a curse as Jack has to contend with not being able to tell the people he gets to know, and love, of his true past and the monstrous secret he must keep hidden. "Boy A" also stars acclaimed actor and director Peter Mullan (The Magdalene Sisters, Children of Men) as Terry, Jack’s care worker and the only person he can really trust. Co-starring Shaun Evans (Teachers) and Katie Lyons (Green Wing), "Boy A" is based on the award-winning novel by Jonathan Trigell.
Oh. If you're wondering where you saw that face, before, of Andrew Garfield, above, you'd be correct if you said in Albeit one of the worst movies of 2007, Andrew Garfield held his own opposite two time Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Robert Reford and three time Oscar loser Tom Cruise, as the fourth main character of "Lions For Lambs".
