Occasional Cinema @Blue Sky - present 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople'

Occasional Cinema

Blue Sky Bangor

Thurs 23 March 17 Hunt for the Wilderpeople TaikaWaititi New Zealand 2016 101   Adventure/Comedy /Drama

A national manhunt is ordered for a rebellious kid and his foster uncle who go missing in the wild New Zealand bush.

Quirky style and highly individual cast members make for a fascinating study of what life can be like for people on the edge of society. Lots of humanity, although often well hidden (and a few people in authority who would give those tormenting Daniel Blake a run for their money) make for a chase which has you on the edge of your seat right up to the last minute.

Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When Ricky is threatened with a move 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 rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser that reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age), and those who help us along the way.

MENU New Zealand minced beef ( or veggy ) and cheese topped pie with gravy
and dippy chips and homemade tomato ketchup.
To follow . . .
Kiwi and strawberry Pavlova
