SPOTLIGHT

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

Directed by Taika Waititi
FEATURE NARRATIVE 102 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE
In Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople, we’re treated to a deliriously off-kilter New Zealand in which a massive manhunt is triggered by series of misunderstandings involving a young orphan and his gruff guardian. As the hapless duo flee from clueless authorities, the comedic chemistry of these mismatched fugitives propels the film forward with increasing energy, delivering a relentlessly entertaining yarn reminiscent of classic 80’s adventure comedies.

Starring Sam Neill, and featuring a hysterical performance from newcomer Julian Dennison, Waititi has crafted a truly touching film that is remarkable in both its humor and its humanity. With the one-two punch of this cinematic gem and his 2015 soon-to-be cult classic What We Do in the Shadows, not to mention the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, Waititi has firmly cemented himself as one of the most exciting, and funniest, voices in film today.
