In Brief: BOY 7 (2015) Fantasia 2015

Amnesiac teen wanders out of  a subway and gets accosted by police. He manages to get away and in a restaurant finds a diary written my himself which explains his plight.

Dystopian science fiction tale is in no way new. The story of a hacker who is thrown in jail and reduced being a number all the while while struggling to get out of his situation and still fight his oppressors has been done to death. Or perhaps not to death, much more creatively.

While not a bad film, this is nothing you haven't seen before and better. On the other hand if you haven't seen a film like this do see this because this film was made for you. For me I lost interest some where about the time our hero got the diary and I realized how this was going to go.

While you won't hate the film you're not going to find yourself raving about it. Though I suspect  that had I seen this when I was 10 or 12 I would have loved it to death. If you're that age give it a shot.

The film's single Fantasia screening is tonight at 5. For more information and tickets go here.
