BOY, written, directed and starring Taika Waititi is a hilarious and heartfelt coming-of-age story. Set on the rural East Coast during the '80s at the height of Michael Jackson and E.T. fever, The film tells the tale of Boy, Rocky and their inept wannabe gangster father Alamein and is inspired by Waititi’s Oscar-nominated Two Cars, One Night and his own childhood in Waihau Bay.
This is a deleted scene from the movie which has since become the number one Kiwi film of all time – taking just eight weeks to pass The World's Fastest Indian's record of more than $7 million. It features Boy and his friends in the "corn" patch discussing who is the ultimate Maori.
