A man looking to shed his former identity in order to move beyond his traumatic past discovers that the past and the future are inexorably linked in director John Crowley's feature adaptation of a novel by author Jonathan Trigell. Terry (Peter Mullan) is a caseworker whose job it is to help people create new lives. His latest charge is a young man with a troubled past who eventually decides on the new name Jack (Andrew Garfield). Jack has decided to start a new life in Manchester, where no one is aware of his sordid history. As Jack begins his new job in a new town, he quickly catches the attention of beautiful co-worker Michelle (Katie Lyons). While Michelle's advances are unmistakable, Jack remains somewhat awkward in his new skin and the initial encounters between the pair are somewhat clumsy. Later, as the two new lovers begin experiencing the thrill of connecting with a kindred soul, Jack performs a heroic feat that finds him celebrated as a local hero, and it begins to look like he has successfully made the transition into his new life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Some New Trailer For Boy A
New Review For Movie Boy AIt makes us feel sympathy for the devil.
Amy Biancolli-Houston Chronicle
Director John Crowley, a veteran Irish theater director now working in film, is deliberate with every last element of his film.
Christy DeSmith-Minneapolis Star Tribune
Even its structurally weaker moments give Garfield an opportunity to expand on Jack's physical and mental dislocation. Given Boy A's final floating reel, it's an anchoring performance in every sense of the word.
Kamal Al-Solaylee-Globe and Mail
The movie is taut with suspense but culminates in wise resignation as the hero comes to understand he's running from a part of himself.
J. R. Jones-Chicago Reader
Crowley gets a remarkable performance from Andrew Garfield: his Jack is a person who carries guilt with him even when he is trying to override it.
Stanley Kauffmann-The New Republic
Boy A is one of those rare movies that takes the idea of rehabilitation seriously. In the end, it may present a worst-case scenario, but it does so with unusual depth and conviction.
John Hartl-Seattle Times
Andrew Garfield nailed an assignment many actors would avoid or, worse, botch in "Boy A" - embody a grown, traumatized man experiencing emotional honesty, transparent kindness, sexual intimacy and genuine appreciation from others for the first time.
The material is thought-provoking and features some very good performances.
Jeff Vice-Deseret News, Salt Lake City
The limits of redemption and forgiveness get challenged ruthlessly in this haunting drama...
MaryAnn Johanson-Flick Filosopher
Efficiently directed by John Crowley, Boy A avoids exploitation while never soft-selling its thorny subject matter.
The genius of Garfield's performance is that he fills him with equal amounts of terror and wonder.
Michael Sragow-Baltimore Sun
This is a brutally honest story that pulls no punches. It excels at everything from the directing and acting to the editing and photography. A stunning achievement
Austin Kennedy-Sin Magazine
Garfield is definitely an actor to watch, but prepare yourself for the disappointing ending.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)-St. Paul Pioneer Press
It's a sad movie, no question -- but like most great drama, it inspires admiration for its thoughtfulness and its craft.
Eric D. Snider-EricDSnider.com
Boy A is the kind of movie that falls victim to the new role of multiplex as babysitter of teenagers. Its life in the theatres will be short, but for the few that find it now it will be worth it.
Jim Slotek-Jam! Movies
The new British film 'Boy A' poses a question that is easy to ask but nearly impossible to answer: Can we ever really escape from our own misdeeds?
His sophomore feature, Boy A explores bleak territory but its insistence on not tying everything up in neat little bows is to be commended.
