Daniel Radcliffe is Maps in “December Boys”, released 2007.
Four boys, Maps, Misty, Spark and Spit, all born in December and living in an orphanage, are sent away to stay at the beach for their birthday.
During their holiday with Mr and Mrs McAnsh, the boys meet Fearless, a circus worker, and his girlfriend Teresa, who express an interest in adopting one of them. Maps, however, is more interested in Lucy, who is on holiday visiting her uncle, and is far more exciting than the prospect of adoption. In a mix of coming-of-age, romance, and drama, viewers are taken on an introspective journey in order to relate to the characters’ discoveries of friendship and love.
