"Great kiwi film"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love this movie. Purchased as a Christmas gift for my Mum who grew up on the South Island and she loves it for the classic (quirky) Kiwi humour, and the authentic representation of what it's really like in rural New Zealand. Absolutely love it.

"I laugh and I cry every time I watch this"
5 stars"

I must have watched this movie ten times as my grandkids (9–12) love it and often put it on when at my place, and I love it every time. Foster kid been from home to home, now at the last chance – with people who wouldn’t have been allowed to foster in usual circumstances. When it turns to custard unexpectedly, the kid takes off… Pure Kiwi humour and NZ bush, with just perfect hyperbole at the end of the chase. Perfect!

Description

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Two rebels. One million hectares of untamed wilderness. The hunt is on.

Ricky (Julian Dennison) is a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle (Sam Neill) in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together to survive in this hilarious and heartfelt adventure.

Read the reviews…

Variety – Its sheer good-naturedness pulls off a not particularly inspired crusty-old-coot-thawed-by-young-scamp concept, maintaining an agreeable tonal balance despite occasional wobbles between spoof, sentimentality and silliness.

L.A. Weekly – One of the most sincere and funny portraits of family life to come along in a while.

TIME Magazine – The cranky charisma of the performers, plus the cheerfully idiosyncratic rhythms of Waititi's fil­mmaking, keep it clicking.

Washington Post – Waititi is an expansive, warm-hearted humanist. The fun he pokes is strictly superficial, never grazing his characters' vital organs or essential dignity.
