This is Taika Wapiti’s new movie, and it is aces. Taika is responsible for cracking good movies like Boy, What We Do in the Shadows and is now currently directing the new Thor movie. Maybe its going to be a comedy?
Anyway, this has Sam Neil and Julian Dennison playing a great double act as a grumpy old codger and a young boy who has no family. Based on a Barry Crump book it it very funny, and is New Zealand’s highest grossing NZ film ever (the Lord of the Rings movies don’t fall into the NZ made film category).
Well worth a watch.
