Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults.
But when they are forced to leave this self-created paradise, their journey into the outside world challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he's taught them.
" Mortensen is magnificent. He gets under the skin of this loving father who must grapple with the possibility that his arrogant, free spirit might actually do harm to his children. The film takes a piece out of you. " -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
A national manhunt is ordered for a rebellious kid and his foster uncle who go missing in the wild New Zealand bush in this adventure comedy-drama.
Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a turn of events threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush.
Cast includes Julian Dennison and Sam Neill.
"Every once in a while, a small, unheralded film comes along, so smart and funny, such a pleasure to experience, you can't believe your luck. "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is such a film."- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.
"A deliciously good time at the movies." -Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
