Gen Z college students Maxime, Julian, and Vilas spend their days partying, listening to music, and hanging out. Maxime is preparing to move across the world to spend an exchange semester at school in Singapore, and the friends look to make every minute together count. The crisp, cold evenings the trio enjoy in Munich are infused with the warmth of group gatherings, the bright revolving colors of discotheques, and quiet moments of self-reflection. Lyrical and intimate, director Sylvain Cruiziat follows his younger brother Maxime and his friends as they navigate the often complex and confusing passage between teenagehood and young adulthood–trying to understand who they are, what they want, and what their future holds. Boyz is a nuanced and rousing observational portrait of coming of age and how these young people view their place in the world. (MS)
