HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE **Part of our NZ Film Festival**

Comedy, Drama | 101 | PG Violence, coarse language, some scenes may disturb young children

Taika Waititi's (Boy) adaptation of Barry Crump's Wild Pork and Watercress. A national manhunt is ordered for rebellious kid Ricky (Julian Dennsion) and his foster uncle (Sam Neill) who go missing in the wild New Zealand bush.

"Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky (Julian Dennison) gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella (Rima Te Wiata), the cantankerous Uncle Hec (Sam Neill), 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 coming-of-age drama, director Taika Waititi masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. Never short on laughs, this touching story reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way." (Sundance Film Festival)
