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, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As 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. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison.

    Much like Napoleon Dynamite, this is one that will not soon be forgotten. It is a constant onslaught of clever humor, absurd humor, and heartfelt human moments, all in the stunning setting of the New Zealand wilderness. Movies that we like this much are rare, and this is one of those treasured classics that families and friends bond over.

    I took a chance on this movie based on the previews. This is a movie that has heart but that is very funny ! I love this young actor and his timing. It had me laughing out loud. There are lots of characters in this movie that support not only the comedic thread but also the heart of this film. It's so refreshing to discover something not off the main grid. I love the music score as well. Do yourself a favor and add this to your collection you will enjoy the journey !

  • Misfits on the Run

    By Frank C 66554321.
    A seriers of unfortunate events force a man and a boy to live on the run in the wilds of New Zeland. Predictable and just outside of reality, but fun and touching. Worth the rent.
