Boys (Jonas)

Essential Opinion: Boys (Jonas)

Boys (Jonas) is Charrier’s second TV movie, and I suspect that it’s only a matter of time before somebody gives him money to make his big screen debut. His film may tell a fairly melodramatic story as it progresses, but it’s easily forgivable due to being grounded within a heartfelt character study – one that is all the more effective due to the perfectly pitched performances he manages to get from the entire ensemble.
