    Hunt for the Wilderpeople 2016

    ★★★★½ Added

    TuPac the dog, Sam the Bushman, and the Wilderpeople. The "What We Do In the Shadows" director Taika Waititi comes back with another fresh comedy that does not disappoint. Broken down by chapters we follow the journey and the relationship of Ricky Baylor (Julian Dennison) and Hector Faulkner (Sam O'Neil). There parts are iconic and like any buddy comedy, we enjoy the ride. Probably the funniest scene is when Hector's wife slaughters the pig. A bit raw, but I was…

    This film I now the most relate to in terms of relationships. How perfect looking at the dysfunction of being normal and how best to let go and live.

Christopher Plummer is perfection in his role as a gay activist coming out late to the party and making up for lost time. Melanie Laurent and Ewan McGregor are beautifully vulnerable. This film…
