Based on the amount of people watching the movie clips
from “December Boys,” Daniel Radcliffe has a lot of fans. When I posted the movie clips yesterday I knew they’d be popular, but the amount of people watching is much
higher than normal.
So what’s a webmaster to do when confronted with a popular story… that’s easy, you post more stuff!
While you may have already seen the clips, or read what he said about "Harry Potter" 6 and 7, you’ve probably not seen the on set video interview Daniel did while filming “December Boys.” And while that might be enough…I’m also posting a video interview with Teresa Palmer, his love interest in the movie.
Finally, below the two video interviews is some B Roll footage. And for those who don’t know what B Roll is, it’s footage that was shot while they were filming the movie. It’s not put together in any sort of organized way, but if you want to watch the actors and filmmakers on set while they were filming, this is the stuff to view.
And for those who don’t know what the film is about…
Based on the classic Michael Noonan novel, “December Boys” is the story of four orphan teenagers growing up behind the closed doors of a Catholic convent in outback Australia during the 1960s. As the boys watch younger kids get adopted by loving families, they begin to realize that as they get older, their turn may never come. When the convent sends the boys to visit the seaside one summer, they finally have something to look forward to.
While at the seaside, the boys meet a young couple unable to have children, who would make the perfect parents. The eldest of the boys, Maps, finds himself drawn to Lucy, a beautiful girl from down the coast. Competing to be the most adoptable, the rest of the boys, Sparks, Misty and Spit, severely test their friendships as long gestating feelings of rejection explode to the surface.
The bonds of friendship eventually overcome the rivalries, sealing forever the strong ties that bind the December boys as they learn the real meaning behind friendship, family and love.
“December Boys” is directed by Rod Hardy, adapted from Noonan’s novel by Marc Rosenberg, and stars Daniel Radcliffe as Maps, Christian Byers as Spark, Lee Cormie as Misty, James Fraser as Spit, Teresa Palmer as Lucy, and Jack Thompson as Bandy McAnsh.
