Aro Favourite Hunt for the Wilderpeople


New Zealand 2016, 101 minutes
Dir. Taika Waititi
Rating: [PG] Violence, coarse language, some scenes may disturb young children
Genres: Comedy, Drama / Adventure


“A lopsided gem full of off-kilter humor, hard truths and real emotion”~Rafer Guzman, Newsday

Aroview: A feel-good comic misadventure in which a rebellious city kid and his reluctant foster uncle become subjects of a manhunt after they "go bush" in the New Zealand wild.

As with BOY, director Taika Waititi fosters another priceless central performance from a child actor in Julian Dennison, and this time finds a relaxed, sustainable comic stride that turned this into a local blockbuster and also connected with international audiences. Based on the Barry Crump novel, "Wild Pork and Watercress".
