The Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with THE FITS

(2016) dir Taika Waititi w/Julian Dennison, Sam Neill [101 min; DCP]
A different type of coming-of-age story from THE FITS, THE HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE concerns itself with pudgy, rebellious Ricky, a city kid sent to live with a new foster mother in the New Zealand bush. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to send Ricky off to yet another temporary home, he and his cantankerous new ‘Uncle’ Hec (Neill) go on the run in the wilderness – and spark a nationwide manhunt. A riotous yet tenderhearted comedy from Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows).

“‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’ takes a troika of familiar story types – the plucky kid, the crusty geezer, the nurturing bosom – and strips them of cliché.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“A familiar sort of coming-of-age movie made more interesting by the uniqueness of its setting and its off-kilter Kiwi humor.” – Andrew Lapin, NPR
