Bay Boy, The*

  • 1984 ----- color ----- 100 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Daniel Petrie; with Liv Ullmann, Kiefer Sutherland, Peter Donat, Mathieu Carriere, Isabelle Mejias) It's 1937, a time of innocence. But love, seduction and murder become part of the life of 16-year-old Don in the Nova Scotia town of Glace Bay. Don is the apple of almost everyone's eye. His adoring mother hopes to see Don become a priest and works hard to shield him from the realities of the Depression, while an attractive teenage admirer works hard to get him into bed. When a sadistic policeman brutally murders an elderly couple, there is one witness to the crime--Don. With each day, the murderer becomes more convinced that Don saw the crime. Torn with indecision and doubt, he remains quiet until the need to speak out becomes a matter of life and death.
