Starboys
DescriptionSTAR BOYS is about what happens when sexual revolution arrives into a conservative and religious small town in Northern Finland, as seen by 13-year-old Star boy singers who are forced to observe their parents’ sexual liberation and it’s consequences at too close range. It’s a powerful story of two families of architects, which are tearing apart by a crumbling of moral conceptions and the parents’ endless need for love and freedom. After a fatal toga party no one and nothing is the same and the boys’ confusion erupts violently…
Even though STAR BOYS deals with heavy themes, it is ultimately a warm and positive survival story that portrays the persistence and capacity of children to get over even most difficult experiences in life.
