“The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind” tells the true story of William Kamkwamba; the young Malawian genius who built a windmill entirely via DIY methods in the early 2000s, to save his family and village from drought and famine. Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor’s skilled directorial debut is as inspiring and morally upright as you’d expect from a film with such rousing source material drawn from real life. While thoroughly traditional with familiar beats of an exceptional child, his disapproving father and an eventual resolution that unites generations, Ejiofor’s movie eloquently harnesses all these customary elements and yields them into an irresistible family film with an urgent human-interest dimension at its heart.
