BOY A | Out Now

A young man is released from prison after many years and given 
a new identity in a new town.

Under the watchful guidance of
 his dedicated caseworker, the parolee assumes the name Jack 
Burridge, and tries to re-settle inconspicuously in working-class
 Manchester.

Taking a delivery job, Jack slowly learns about
 everything he missed while growing up in prison. In time, Jack
 enjoys the esteem of co-workers and love of a compassionate
 girlfriend, Kelly. But the more he becomes part of the fabric of 
this new world, the more he risks being exposed as a fraud and
 Jack’s happy-ever-after is cut short when, fatefully, an impulsive 
act of heroism leads to his exposure.

Boy A takes hold of a
 viewer in its opening scene and never lets go.
 This lauded, moving story, originally aired on Channel 4 in the
UK, was then critically acclaimed around the world and is seen 
as Andrew Garfield’s breathtaking breakthrough.
