There's a reason Hunt for the Wilderpeople became New Zealand's all-time highest grossing film when it hit cinemas two years ago – because it's solid gold. The hilarious and heart-warming story made a star of Julian Dennison, who plays Ricky Baker - a real bad egg who finds himself landed in the middle-of-nowhere with a grumpy foster father. Ricky and "Uncle Hec" (Sam Neill) find themselves at the centre of a national manhunt and forced to put aside their differences and work together to survive. Directed by Taika Waititi, Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a wonderful cheeky story involving adventure and genuine camaraderie. The hunt begins on Neon from Saturday.
