About A Boy

The film version of Nick Hornby's novel About A Boy takes a deeper though no less entertaining approach than the easy laughs of Fever Pitch and High Fidelity.

The coming together of idle playboy Will (Hugh Grant) and put-upon loner Marcus (Nicholas Hoult) is a revealing tale of self-understanding and role reversal. Will finds that being yourself is of little consequence without a defining human context, while Marcus finds that pleasing others counts for little without a degree of self-confidence.
