The scripting, the dialogue, the scenery choices, the score, has it all of the pieces to make you feel its great pacing & progression. An old-school murder mystery primarily told as a courtroom drama, the paperback adaptation entertains from start to finish.

Set in the late 1980s, Ocean Boy is told through the eyes of a 13-year-old boy, Rockit. As he grapples to understand why his Mum’s not coming home, Rockit embarks on a magical holiday with his father, Bosch, only to discover they’re actually running from the law. Rockit finds a soulmate and then teenage love with Ash Ash, but it’s the ocean that gives him the security and calm he yearns from his parents. Ultimately Rockit is a boy held by nature, a young man who wins our hearts and respect as his story unfolds. Filmed at iconic Byron Bay, against the canvas of Australia’s famous east coast surf beaches and rain forests, Ocean Boy is a raw and unapologetic exploration of unconscious parenting and the deeper themes of love and relationships.
Q-tips say: It wasn’t exactly what we thought it would be. But some might enjoy this movie. This movie starts off as a movie about a drug dealer on the run with his son in tow quickly loses both its shape and its momentum. The lovely locales and nifty surfing footage aren’t enough to save this meandering Australian coming-of-age tale.
