PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
One summer, four orphans boys who have grown to be the closest of friends find themselves competing for the attention of the same family.
Actor Lee Cormie said of his character: "Misty is the youngest, but he's the most mature. He's the one that says, 'don't do that, don't do this', and he makes his hair nice and tucks his shirt in. I really liked the story and I thought it was very well written. It's taken the producers fourteen years to make this film, that's before I was born!". Cormie said how much he enjoyed working with Daniel Radcliffe: "He's a great bloke! I thought it was fantastic that he was going to be in the film and I was very excited to meet him. He's really nice. He's also very focused. It was a great learning experience for me because I could just follow in his footsteps."
Just remember Misty, no matter what, you're still a December boy.
In the feature, the boy portrayed by Christian Byers is sometimes called "Spark" (07:09 by Reverend Mother, 05:20 by adult Misty, 15:55 and 20:33 by Spit) and sometimes called "Sparks" (03:33 by Maps, 19:51 by Misty), with the DVD captions spelling it however the actors say it. At 09:05, where their nicknames have been scrawled in dust on the tailgate of the vehicle, it is spelled "Spark". In the End Credits (01:41:18 to 01:41:25), it is spelled "Sparks". In the novel 'December Boys' on which the screenplay is based, one of five "December Boys" is named "Spark".
