BOY
I love A Boy's Best Friend. It is a realistic depiction of how a dog can bring joy to people's lives, even when times are tough. The entire film is beautiful.

The film is about the relationship between a boy, Billy (Quinn Friedman), and his dog during the pandemic while his parents are having marital difficulties.

The story line is uplifting and very realistic. A lot of children experience their parents having fights, similar to this boy. But, his dog rescues him and brings him joy. The camerawork is excellent, especially the close-ups of the boy's face. The lighting and audio are excellent. The costumes are typical daily wear by contemporary kids. The location is inside and outside a beautiful house. The music is perhaps a bit saccharine, but it suits the storyline. Most importantly, the boy tries various things to entertain himself; he weeps as he listens to his parents argue; finally, he realizes that his dog is there to keep him company, play with him and absorb his tears. The boy, played by Quinn Friedman, shows real emotions throughout the film and, even though there is no dialogue, you can completely identify with him. My favorite part is when the boy turns to his dog as he sleeps in his arms.

The message of about how much joy an animal can bring into our lives, even when things are not going very well.

I give A Boy's Best Friend 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 through 18, plus adults. By Pamela L., KIDS FIRST!
