CAN | 1986 | 93 min | 14A
A clothing-optional, exceptionally sweaty Nicolas Cage stars as Ned Hanlan, the namesake of Toronto’s very own clothing-optional beach in this CBC-produced biopic of the 19th-century champion sculler by day, bootlegger by night.
Dropping early in Cage’s career, THE BOY IN BLUE Is perhaps the most obscure, least-discussed entry in our UnCaged retrospective. Co-starring a very cantankerous Christopher Plummer and boasting a suspicious amount of side breast as well as shirtless Cage, this can-con erotic oddity delivers us some phenomenally out-of-place 19th-century Cage rage.
