One of the warmest surprises from this year’s Sundance, this comedy-adventure from New Zealand auteur Taika Waititi (Boy, Eagle vs. Shark, What We Do in the Shadows) stars Sam Neill as a grizzled backwoodsman who finds himself on the run from the authorities with Ricky (Julian Dennison), a 13-year-old orphan from the city completely lacking in wilderness skills. One of the best “odd-couple” movies in years begins with Ricky’s arrival as foster child at the rural home of nurturing Aunt Bella (Rima Te Wiata) and cantankerous Uncle Hec. By the time Ricky and Hec become outlaws in a national manhunt, you’ll have been utterly charmed by this crowd-pleaser’s deft blend of quirky humor and scenic adventure. Based on the book Wild Pork and Watercress by Barry Crump. Writer/Director: Taika Waititi. (New Zealand 2016) 101 min.
