Boca

Boca
Feature film project based on the play by Christopher Kyle


The award-winning Boca is a dark comedy about, as one critic said, "a disjointed and randomly violent American landscape." Christopher Kyle also wrote the screenplays  for Oliver Stone's Alexander, as well as K-19: The Widowmaker with Harrison Ford, and Serena with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.


"For my money, Boca is the best written script of the year. It's disturbing but it's also funny. The central question -- what does family really mean? -- resonates in every relationship. Not only does it make you laugh, it makes you think."
Bill Bly, Director, Stanley Drama Award

"Take Salvador Dali, marry him to Son of Sam, and you get Boca, a wild ride across a randomly violent American landscape that is littered with gun shops and Waffle Houses,biker mags and Pepperoni sticks...Hysterical but troubling..Funny and devastating..one of the best plays the (Rep) festival has ever produced."
Charlotte Observer
