50 Ways of Saying Fabulous
(2005)

Country: New Zealand

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Billy is an overweight 12 year old living on a farm in New Zealand. He doesn't fit in at school, and dreams of becoming a glamorous space explorer he sees on television. Problem is the space explorer is a girl, and Billy is struggling with the fact he's gay. His cousin Lou is a tough tomboy who can play sports and take care of Billy. Two strangers enter the story, and Billy's world is changed forever. One is the "freaky" new kid at school who has just moved from the city, and seems more aware about sexuality than Billy. The other is a strikingly handsome farm hand named Jamie. Both of these characters force Billy to come to terms with why he's different.

The character I felt the greatest sympathy for was Roy (Jay Collins) - and everyone was unremittingly horrible to him throughout the entire movie! It was hard for me to feel much sympathy for the film's protagonist Billy (Andrew Patterson), though I quite liked Arch (George Mason). A very faithful adaptation of Graeme Aitken's novel. Definitely worth a view.

Strong though flawed handling of unusual and interesting material.
