A national manhunt is ordered for a rebellious kid and his foster uncle who go missing in the wild New Zealand bush.

“[Waititi’s] nimble adaptation here combines solid writing with an entire bag of filmmaking tricks that includes visual gags, unexpected cuts and quick montage sequences to score laughs from the get-go. He also cleverly exploits who these people are to get the audience in stitches.” – Boyd van Hoeli, The Hollywood Reporter


“Warmly funny and deeply delightful, Hunt For The Wilderpeople is a tale of two misfits told with such generosity of spirit and consistent good humour that it’s a pleasant surprise to discover how sneakily touching it is as well.” – Tim Grierson, Screen International
