About this movie

In Will’s world, every man is an island, children are a terrible menace, and one can live the rest of his life off the royalties from his dad’s famous Christmas song. But one day, Will (Hugh Grant) comes up with a new and brilliant scheme - finding dates by pretending to be a single father! It’s a bit of a shame when his clever plan backfires, and he finds himself saddled with Marcus, a troubled, nerdy boy (Nicholas Hoult) and his suicidal hippie mother Fiona (Toni Collette). And no matter what Will does, he simply cannot make them go away. The solution, of course, is simple - and as Will gives up trying to push people away, he learns to let them in, too.Based on the book by Nick Hornby and unlike the stereotypical Hugh Grant movie, About A Boy is not at heart a romantic comedy, but a funny story about the friendship between the characters
