Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Rating: PG - Mild themes and coarse language
Plot: Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac.
When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.
Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, upcoming Thor: Ragnorak) masterfully weaves lively humour with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison.
A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, Hunt for the Wilderpeople reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.
