This week: How to Make Boyhood Last For Ever
When we were boys adventure was everywhere. We rescued maidens, shot down the bad men, drove the night expresses. Then we grew up and the bold dreams were cast off with the short trousers. But there are men who cannot let go their boyhood fantasies; who devote much of their manhood to preserving their boyhood tor ever. This film shows four of them-living in their dreams.
