Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Of everything on my list, this is the film I’m most confident you’ve already seen. Of course you’ve seen it. You don’t choose the skux life. The skux life chooses you.

If you haven’t seen it, and you want to know what to expect, I don’t know what to tell you except, a little bit of everything. Julian Dennison gives one of the all-time greatest child performances, Sam Neill possibly a career best, and Rachel House is perfect as always. The writing and direction are brilliant, breaking your heart one moment then making you cry with laughter the next. It’s majestical.
