Taika Waititi (What We do in the Shadows, Flight of the Concorde) makes a triumphant return to our cinemas in January with the satirical black comedy, JoJo Rabbit. In his delightful 2016 film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the director offers up an entertaining variation on the coming-of-age drama, with Julian Dennison and Sam Neill as a winning pair of outsiders.
Troublesome misfit Ricky has only ever known foster homes. When he runs away from his latest one, he finds an ally in eccentric Uncle Hec (Sam Neill) who shows him how to survive in the New Zealand wilderness.
★★★★★ "You’ll be left with a glow that’ll ensure 'Wilderpeople' a place on your best-of-year list" - Dan Jolin, Empire
