Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Directed by Taika Waititi
Hunt for the Wilderpeople, based on the book Wild Pork and Watercress by Barry Crump, is an adventure comedy drama that follows a child and his cantankerous foster uncle as they travel in the New Zealand bush. Occasionally sentimental, but often quite funny, Hunt for the Wilderpeople is far better than one would expect from its unlikely friendship between a grumpy old man and a persistent child premise. The film isn’t groundbreaking, but it’s eminently enjoyable.
