Submission + - International Launch of "Boy" in joepardy (

capt.Hij writes: The film "Boy" has been a extremely popular in New Zealand. The film has been leaked and has spread on the internet. So far it has only been released in New Zealand (except for a brief viewing at the Sundance Film Festival), and it appears that the international release is in jeopardy because of doubts that it can be sold. In particular the film has not been released yet in Australia which hosts a large number of kiwis. Another point of view (with more links) can be found in the following blog entry. The speed of the internet and the limited ability to give every film a world wide viewing at once raises a question as to why the film execs insist that we all have to wait and find a seat at our local movie theaters.
