Director François Girard, known for his acclaimed films Silk, The Red Violin and Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, is back with an all-new drama this spring. Boychoir arrives in theaters this April, and is headlined by acclaimed actor Dustin Hoffman as a demanding vocal teacher. He is joined on screen by an all-star cast that includes Kathy Bates, Josh Lucas, Debra Winger, Kevin McHale, Eddie Izzard and River Alexander.
Boychoir follows Stet, a troubled and angry 11-year-old orphan from a small Texas town who ends up at a Boy Choir school back East after the death of his single mom. Completely out of his element, he finds himself in a battle of wills with a demanding Choir Master who recognizes a unique talent in this young boy. The man will push Stet to the breaking point, hoping the prodigy will discover his creative heart and soul in music.
Check it out as this rebellious preteen with a remarkable gift played by newcomer Garrett Wareing goes head-to-head with acting legend (Dustin Hoffman) at one of the most prestigious music academies in the country as they prepare for the National Championship. We have the first trailer and the new poster. If you loved the Academy Award nominated Whiplash, you're sure to enjoy this as well.
