Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Set in New Zealand, Hunt for the Wilderpeople tells the story of a recently adopted teenager’s flight through the wilderness with his adopted father to evade child protective authorities and the police. Saying more about the plot would reveal too much, but this is a very humane portrait of an adoptive mother, father, and orphan. New Zealand is a beautiful place and I’m always amazed by the way the timing of humor just “works” across English-speaking countries. I would definitely recommend this one; very diverting. If you appreciated JoJo Rabbit, you’ll like this one–it’s the same director, Taika Waititi.
