Hunt For The Wilderpeople (12A)
Extra Screenings Added
Thu 01 Jan 1970
New Zealand, 2016, 101 mins, dir. Taika Waititi
Acclaimed New Zealand director Taika Waititi (What We Did In The Shadows) returns with another distinctive, visually inventive and effortlessly funny film.
Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) is a defiant, trash-talking misfit sent by child services to start a new life in rural New Zealand with a foster family: aunt Bella, gruff uncle Hec (Sam Neill) and dog Tupac. But when events threaten his return, Ricky runs into the bush with Hec in pursuit. With the two of them missing, a national manhunt is begun – forcing Ricky and Hec to embark on a months-long trek, and to overcome their differences to get by.
Based on the book Wild Pork and Watercress by Barry Crump, and with charismatic, pitch-perfect performances from Dennison and Neill.
