Aroview: A feel-good comic misadventure in which a rebellious city kid and his reluctant foster uncle become subjects of a manhunt after they “go bush” in the New Zealand wild.
As with BOY, director Taika Waititi fosters another priceless central performance from a child actor in Julian Dennison, and this time finds a relaxed, sustainable comic stride that turned this into a local blockbuster and also connected with international audiences. Based on the Barry Crump novel, “Wild Pork and Watercress”.
“A lopsided gem full of off-kilter humor, hard truths and real emotion.”
