Hunt for the Wilderpeople (Cert 12A)
Dir Taika Waititi New Zealand 2016 101 mins
This award-winning comedy-drama starring Sam Neill is based on Barry Crump’s novel ‘Wild Pork and Watercress‘. Set in New Zealand, it tells the story of juvenile delinquent Ricky Baker who is placed in the care of foster parents Bella and Hec (played by Neill), far away from the city where he styles himself as a gangster.
When a tragedy threatens to steal back the life he has come to love, Ricky goes on the run in the New Zealand bush, with Hec in hot pursuit of the unprepared boy. But when child services visit Bella and Hec’s home only to find it empty, a national manhunt is launched for the missing boy and his presumed abductor.
