Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Film Review

hunt-for-the-wilderpeople-poster

Ricky (Julian Dennison) is a tough pre-teen who has been in and out of foster homes and finally, is given his last chance with Bella (Rima Te Wiata) and Hec (Sam Neill). One thing leads to another, and Ricky and Hec end up living in the wilds of New Zealand with a man hunt chasing them.

Director Taika Waititi did the most wonderful and fantastic film Boy just a few years ago, and this has that similar effect of gently pulling your heartstrings whilst making you laugh A LOT. It’s a great film, Ricky is fabulous, as is Sam Neill (no surprise there) but for me, the highlight was Rima Te Wiata. She’s adorable, very funny and ace, and I want to see her in more, please.
