Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016)
Saturday 7th January 2017
Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky (Jullian Dennison) gets a fresh new start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the Loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec (Sam Neill: Jurassic Park, Peaky Blinders) and dog Tupac.
When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.
Hunt For The Wilderpeople, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Signature Entertainment on 16th January 2017, is a hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok) and starring Sam Neill, Julian Dennison and Rhys Darby (TV's Flight of the Conchords).
