Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople ★★★★

Things that need to happen more. Sam Neill needs to be in more feature films, he is a NZ national treasure. As is Rima Te Wiata - after this and Housebound, it showed how much we've missed her impeccable comic timing and her fantastic kiwi cadence. Julian Dennison is totally gangsta.

This is like a lo-fi Lord of the Rings by way of the Goonies and infused with so much Kiwi humour to make this a surefire hit at home but the heart to make it big overseas. And there are two cameos that should have you cheering in the aisles. It is majestical.
