This quirky and charming comedy drama from New Zealand film maker Taika Waititi ('Flight of the Conchords', 'What We Do in the Shadows') features Julian Dennison as misfit teen Ricky who, after being moved from foster home to foster home, finally begins to settle with the maternal Bella, played by Rima Te Wiata.

An unhappy occurrence forces him closer to Bella's cantankerous husband Hec, played by Sam Neill. Against his better judgment, Hec begins to teach Ricky the basic skills needed to survive in the New Zealand wilderness.

The result is a funny and moving take on the coming-of-age and buddy genres, that was named no.1 movie of 2016 by Empire magazine.
