About a Boy Essay.
About a Boy is a movie about a poor boy named Marcus and his mother. They live on their own in a small apartment. Marcus goes to a public school dressed in very old clothes and worn out shoes. He has no friends and gets bullied a lot. Marcus’ mother is a lot of the problem. She makes him dress old fashioned and makes him feel guilty when he does something she doesn’t like, even it is a normal thing for a teenager. She has problems though and can possibly be forgiven. Then came along Will. Will is a man who is all about himself, cares about no one else and is very rich. He lives on his own in a nice sized, well financed apartment.
When Marcus gets introduced to Will he takes a liking to him. Marcus sees past Wills clannish ways and tries to set Will and his mother up on a date. Will is very reluctant to this idea but agrees to it, just so Marcus will stop bugging him. Marcus believes as long as his mother has someone in her life that she will be happy, not to forget that Will can support them. Will goes on the date and really doesn’t find Marcus’ mother attractive. She is emotional, tiresome and cant keep a conversation going. The date was not a success. Will is not in to those type of women. Never the less Marcus believes that the date was a success and he thinks his mum will cheer up.
