Hunt for the Wilderpeople

The Next Reel The Hunt for the Wilderpeople

“You know, sometimes in life it seems like there's no way out. Like a sheep trapped in a maze designed by wolves.“

This month, JJ and Steve are off into the deep bush country of New Zealand to track down one of Andy’s trailer picks from last year. What they find is an unexpected treasure full of beautiful camera work, lovable characters, and a variety of unexpected film references. Hunt for the Wilderpeople is one of those rare four-quadrant films that appeals to everyone. There’s action and adventure, fish-out-of-water comedy, and a great relationship story between a wanna-be gangster teen and a crotchety backcountry hunter. So gather your friends and family together to watch this overlooked gem.
