The Farm Boy is a WWII-era story about a young man, Calvin Dillard, who drives a milk truck for his father. He meets a girl from a neighboring farm at a barn dance. They fall in love and eventually get married but, the day after their marriage, Calvin is sent to war in Europe.

A farm boy who can fix anything in an emergency, Calvin’s mechanical skills are his salvation during what will become known as one of the most famous WWII battles of all times – the Battle of the Bulge. As his unit heads north, he is hit by enemy fire and left for dead.

The Farm Boy is both a story of first love and a war driven adventure, filled with tension and action, through the Ardennes Forest in Belgium, 1944.

Filmed in black and white, using wide angle lenses and conventional camera techniques of that time period, The Farm Boy was filmed mostly on director George Woodard’s farm in Waterbury Center, Vermont. Join us immediately following the screening for a Q&A session with director George Woodard, moderated by MNFF Producer Lloyd Komesar.
