Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment,
Rebellious teenage orphan Ricky (Julian Dennison) is shipped off to live with a foster family in the New Zealand countryside. Unhappy with his new surroundings, he attempts to run away and hide in the unforgiving wilderness. His reluctant caretaker Hec (Sam Neill) eventually finds him, and the unlikely duo survive in the harsh terrain as a nationwide manhunt is launched to find them. This coming-of-age dramedy was directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi
