|about a boy|
|Based on Nick Hornby's popular British novel, about a boy is a comedy-drama starring Hugh Grant as Will, a rich, childless and irresponsible Londoner in his thirties who, in search of available women, invents an imaginary son and starts attending single parent meetings. As a result of one of his liaisons, he meets Marcus, an odd 12-year-old boy with problems at school. Gradually, the two become friends.
