"Remarkable woman"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Remarkable woman. Had me in tears. Shame we can't learn from her life & apply it to todays society.



A biopic of the trailblazing female Māori leader, Dame Whina Cooper, whose extraordinary life saw her break gender boundaries, champion innovation, and fight for the recognition of her own culture, all the while staying true to her heart and her beliefs.

Critic Reviews:

  • " It is as much a lesson from history as it is a profoundly intimate portrait of an individual, but rides both of these waves with grace and beauty to spare. " – James Hanton (Outtake Mag)
  • " Miriama McDowell and Vinnie Bennett as Dame Whina and William Cooper bring their love story to life, and Rena Owen brings the gravitas and mana wahine as she marched her way down the motu and into the history books. " – Kate Rodger (Newshub, NZ)
  • " Directors James Napier Robertson and Paula Whetu Jones coax great performances from all their cast, but the absolute stars here will always be Miriama McDowell and Rena Owen, playing Whina as a grown and elderly woman respectively. " – Graeme Tuckett (Stuff.co.nz)
