The Boys Next Door

where ‘little things’ sometimes become momentous

 By Tom Griffin 

Lucien P. Smith has the mind of a five-year old, but imagines that he is able to read and comprehend the weighty books that he lugs about, Arnold, the ringleader of the group, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer, who suffers from deep-seated insecurities and a persecution complex; while Barry, a bright schizophrenic who is devastated by the unfeeling rejection of his brutal father, fantasizes that he is a golf pro.  Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these ‘Boys’, where ‘little things’ sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy where we’re reminded that the handicapped, like the rest of us, want only to love, laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time which they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth.
