Tarantino is in the country for a short break, after attending the Auckland premiere of his latest film, The Hateful Eight, with long-time Kiwi friend Zoe Bell.

Bell, a stuntwoman who has appeared in a number of Tarantino's films, grew up on Waiheke and said this week that she would be showing off her home to him over the following few days.
