Embrace the opportunity to catch Alê Abreu’s Best Animated Feature Oscar nominee, Boy & The World, about a little boy who embarks on a journey to find his father. This Brazilian tale basks in glowing imagery married to stirring rhythms intended to anchor its heartwarming message. At its root, though, Boy & The World seeks to capture the larger modern landscape through the eyes of a child without the degree of escapist fantasy we have come to expect from animated features. (Opens Friday at Esquire Theatre) (PG) Not screened in time for review
