"BOY A" -- Released on DVD 10/7

Insightful and poignant, thought-provoking and controversial, Boy A, arrives on DVD October 7th from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company in the Miriam Collection. Lauded at film festivals around the world and winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival, Boy A stars Andrew Garfield (The Other Boleyn Girl, Lions For Lambs) in his BAFTA®-award winning performance as a young ex-convict returning to society after 14 years of incarceration in a juvenile prison. Forced to live under an assumed name, "Boy A" struggles to establish a new identity at the age of 24 and enter a society that he has never known.

After a random act of kindness catapults him into the media spotlight, his past is uncovered, re-igniting public outrage and making it increasingly clear that a second chance at life may be impossible. A gripping drama based on the award-winning novel by Jonathan Trigel, acclaimed filmmaker John Crowley's (Intermission) Boy A earned six BAFTA nominations in addition to Garfield's win for Best Actor. The DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.95.
