The year is 1979, when life was simpler but families were still complex, and an Indian family moves to America hoping to live the American Dream. Reminiscent of The Wonder Years, Good Ol' Boy is an endearing coming-of-age story, where 10-year-old Smith falls for the girl next door and is caught between his family's Hindu traditions and his desire to become a "good old boy." While the children and their stories take the lead, Good Ol' Boy challenges the stereotypical notion of both traditional Indian and predictable redneck families as the patriarchs help tell a compelling tale of the struggles of parenthood and married life for anyone of any race or background. By initially treating the characters as caricatures of themselves, we're given the chance to laugh with them as we watch how the depth of their characters and love for their families evolve.

Adding to the mix, director Frank Lotito brilliantly incorporates the soundtrack as a character throughout, including Johnny Cash's Don't Take Your Gun to Town, when all-American dad Butch takes his vegetarian neighbor on a big game hunting trip. No matter what your background, all it takes to fall in love with this movie is an open mind and an open heart.
