Boychoir: Movie Review

20141104153350!Boychoir_movie_posterFrançois Girard’s long-drawn-out career as a director, whether of films or operas, has vastly centered around music. Rising to fame for his critically acclaimed Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould (1993), Girard went on to direct The Red Violin which won him an Academy Award for Best Original Score, enshrining himself as a key player in the international movie scene.

After a 7-year directorial hiatus following his less successful Silk, Girard has made a welcome return to filmmaking with his euphonic drama, Boychoir. Inspired by the polished raw talents of the American Boychoir School, Girard’s Boychoir is a refreshing young-adult drama film that is set to appeal to masses of all ages.
