Hunt for the Wilderpeople

From Kiwi writer-director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Eagle vs Shark) comes this adventurous comedy-drama. A national manhunt is ordered after a rebellious 13-year-old from the big city (hilarious newcomer Julian Dennison) and his country-fried foster uncle (Sam Neill) go missing in the wilds of New Zealand. Far more down-to-earth than Waititi's previous works, this father/son action/adventure tale is good-natured, good-humored and surprisingly moving. After this the filmmaker graduates to the big time, directing Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel/Disney. 101 minutes PG-13.
