"New Boy"

New Boy is a short film from Ireland. It was winner of Best Narrative Short at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival and nominated for an Academy Award.
A young African boy with a haunting back story starts school in Ireland, and finds out quickly exactly what it means to be the new kid.
New Boy was written and directed by Steph Green. The boy, Joseph, was played by Olutunji Ebun-Cole, who had a small part in Casino Royale (2006).
