Publisher's Description

A self-absorbed man and a troubled boy develop a transforming friendship.


Overview


No man is an island, poet and preacher John Donne wrote in the early 1600s. Well, maybe not an island, but perhaps a personal pleasure cruise nowadays? Our stuff has helped us cut our moorings with those around us. About A Boy is a film about two disconnected people two islands. One is a self-centered, affluent man who is disconnected from others by choice and by means. The other is a troubled, outcast boy who longs for healthy connections with others but can t find them. Interestingly, the man s self-absorbed, pleasure-cruise lifestyle intertwines with the boy s, leading to transformation and community for both.


This study will help you discuss the themes and questions raised in About a Boy. How do the cultural values of isolation and affluence affect us? How are incarnation and human transformation related? What s the place of community in our disconnected society?
