Brazilian artist Alê Abreu’s Academy Award®-nominated masterpiece is a riotous explosion of music and color that critics proclaim is "one of the most beautiful animated features ever made." (David Noh, Film Journal International) Cuca's cozy rural life is shattered when his father leaves for the city. Determined to reunite his family, Cuca embarks on a journey that unfolds like a tapestry – the film's stunning visuals becoming more complex as his small world expands. The story of a changing world through the eyes of a curious child, Boy & the World depicts a clash between village and city, nature and industry, the rich and the poor – and despite the tumult, the heart and soul of the people beats on as a song…

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Boy and the World is a Brazilian animated adventure with virtually no dialogue -- but you don't need words to follow this beautiful story of a young country boy searching for his father in the big city so his family can be reunited. There's no overly questionable content (though the boy does face some mild peril, and the family's separation could certainly be upsetting for younger/more sensitive kids), but there are some mature themes and overtones that are likely to go over little kids' head -- i.e. the tension between city life and country life (and the sometimes overwhelming nature of being in a big city), the struggle to make a living in an increasingly industrial world, environmental perils, etc. On the other hand, kids will definitely relate to the desire for a family reunion and having all loved ones nearby.
