A young Brooklyn boy witnesses the brutal murder of his mother and grows up obsessed with finding her killer. Thus begins his life as a quiet, straight-A student by day and a self-appointed hero at night. But what is a real hero? And who decides what is right or wrong? As the boundaries blur, Sean's dual life wears on his psyche and his two worlds careen dangerously close to colliding. Like a graphic novel you can't put down, Boy Wonder challenges morality, distorting perceptions of what is right and what is justified, as it races to its shocking conclusion.

great indie thriller
I went to screening of Boy Wonder and was expecting nothing good. I was
really surprised, this film is shot beautifully and they got some great
performances, the kid playing Sean, Caleb something, was great. This
movie is a puzzle and the way the story is told keeps you thinking all
the way through. THE ENDING IS AWESOME!!!! This is not really an action
movie but there are some great fight scenes. The fights are really
quick and brutal and realistic in my opinion. I was approached to
screen the film because I work in a comic book store and the director
is into comic books. The movie does have a graphic novel feel to it.
Like old school Frank Miller/ Klaus Jansen Daredevil. Not a hokey
superhero story but more dark avenger, flawed hero (really flawed).
It's not about Dick Grayson by the way.
