         about a boy

    [ a b o u t   a  b o y  : m o v i e  r e v i e w ]

    Classification: dvd

    Nick Hornby's answer to Bridget Jones gets the Brit flick treatment from a surprising source, with American Pie directors Chris and Paul Weitz at the helm and Robert De Niro's Tribeca Productions as a backer. But, unlike ' the Americanised version of Hornby's High Fidelity, this movie remains on home turf.

    Hugh Grant is on excellent form as a 30-something, shallow singleton, who intends to use single-parent support groups to pick up women. One of his would-be conquests introduces him to troubled boy Nicholas Hoult and his suicidal mother Toni Collette. All goes surprisingly well until the confirmed bachelor falls for single mother Rachel Weisz, which puts a strain on their friendship.

    Genuinely funny and moving, this is an endearing examination of 21st Century masculinity.
