Movie Spotlight: The Boy

The Boy is a 2016 movie starring Lauren Cohan, Rupert Evans, Jim Norton, Diana Hardcastle, Ben Robson, Jett Klyne, James Russell, and Lily Pater. Greta (Lauren Cohan) agrees to be a nanny for a family in England and learns that the 8-year-old boy she is supposed to take care of is actually a life-sized doll (easiest job ever!). After she breaks a few of the family's rules, odd things start happening, and Greta wonders if "The Boy" is more than just a doll.

If the people I worked for introduced me to their "son," and he was obviously a doll that they wanted me to treat like a real person, that would be my cue to leave, but that would be a really short movie, so of course that's not what happened in The Boy. Despite the fact that the way the characters treat the doll is pretty ridiculous, I enjoyed the movie and thought that Lauren Cohan and Rupert Evans gave great performances. I wouldn't say the movie was scary, but it was creepy, and if there's a sequel, I'll definitely watch it. : )

My rating: 7.5/10
