The New Boy

  • Added 2 years ago to SNEAK PREVIEWS

    Two young sisters watch Sam, their new teenage neighbour from afar.

    They track his movements and seek information on him.

    When they finally meet him 10 year-old Dani strikes up a friendship and stops her spying, preferring to enjoy his company.

    But teenage Louisa takes a different path, during her continued surveillance of him she slips into obsession before stumbling across another observer. The film centers on the importance of friendship and the difference between love and obsession.

    It questions living in an age where society finds it acceptable to seek and find out information about another - with or without permission.
