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 tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, he and Hec go on the run in the bush, and a national manhunt ensues. The newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory, or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS; the upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. The result is a hilarious, touching crowd pleaser that is equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story. HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us to appreciate the journey of growing up (from any age) and those who help us along the way.
