Will, a rich, child-free and irresponsible Londoner in his thirties who, in search of available women, invents an imaginary son to attend single parent meetings. As a result of one of his liaisons, he meets Marcus, an odd 12-year-old boy with problems at school. Gradually, Will and Marcus become friends, and as Will teaches Marcus how to be a cool kid, Marcus helps Will to finally grow up.
a personal favourite - the best of British light and warm humour
- About a Boy review by CP Customer
Perfectly cast and presented, a warm and sincere movie containing characters most English people know. I just love this film and have watched it a few times, it never fails to make me smile and feel good at least a few times every time. The score is perfect, absolutely perfect. Certainly the best Hugh Grant role I have ever seen and certainly the best of British light and warm humour.
