Hunt For the Wilderpeople (2016) Looks Like Indie Excellence – Trailer Review

There is something to be admired in the indie genre of filmmaking, not because they can make cool stories on small budgets, but because of the compelling nature each film has. From the director of Boy and What We Do in the Shadows comes another New Zealand indie classic (from the trailer I think that) with a really overweight child and a bearded grouch who will likely become really close and cool with said overweight child.

It looks funny, compelling, and suprisingly larger than life even though it is embedded in reality without robots and aliens or capes. This is the film worth looking forward to after you’ve spent all your allowance on the blockbuster films during the year. When you want to find a smaller story then these are the films you go for.

The film should be out June of 2016 here in the U.S. but is gracing its hometown currently.

  1. As much as I wanted to like this film my review sadly concludes “This film would be ‘great family fun’ if you are a Kiwi. For everyone else however, even their closest Aussie cousins, this film is little more than a spectacular tourism advertisement for the rugged landscapes and mountainous lakes and gorges that are scattered across beautiful New Zealand.”
