The concept of Boy Wonder attracted me, but the film totally surpassed all of my expectations. I found myself reminded of Scorcese, not just in the underlying violence of the subject matter, but in the way shots were framed - and just the sense that there was somebody behind the camera who know exactly what film he wanted to make.
All of the actors - who to me are mostly unknown - were great, but Caleb Steinmeyer in the title role gave a fantastic performance and I will be surprised if he doesn't achieve a higher profile later in his career. It looks clear that Boy Wonder is destined to fly so low under the radar that it will disappear without a trace, and that's a real shame - clearly made on a shoestring, but one of the best films I've seen in a while.
