(2002) dir Niki Caro w/Keisha Castle-Hughes [101 min; Digital]
One of the most sensational film breakouts of the early 2000s, WHALE RIDER follows Pai Apirana (Castle-Hughes), a young girl from a line of tribal Maori leaders who longs to break tradition and learn the ways of her ancestors. Girls are forbidden from learning the skills that would make them leaders (at least according to her grandfather) but Pai is determined and searches for a way to prove herself.

“A thoughtful, vivid spiritual coming-of-age story that transcends its particular cultural context.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“At its transporting best, Whale Rider seesaws between archetype and innocence – it’s a re-founding myth that happens in real time, before an audience’s wondering eyes.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“Fresh, observant, tough and genuinely moving.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
