The Foster Boy


Watch The Foster Boy (2011)

The illegal orphan, 12-year-old Max, is sold by the local minister for a food basket to the Bösiger family, who own a mountain farm. Max's initial hope of finding a loving home is brutally destroyed: the farmer and his wife treat Max as farm animals, and their son Jacob humiliates and exploits him. Only a local teacher notices a child suffering on the farm.

For me The Foster Boy - was the biggest surprise of the year 2011. The term 'Best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest movie ever made. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. The Foster Boy is the only movie I saw full, more than once. It can be interpreted in many ways. Fucking loved this movie! Such a mix of emotions. Now sit up and watch, I'm 100% sure, you won't be disappointed.... Show more
