'I didn't choose the skuxx life, the skuxx life chose me.'
Taika Watiti has to be some kind of third-degree relative to Wes Anderson, otherwise I can not explain the ingenuity of this movie.
As you may guess, I loved Hunt for the Wilderpeople. It's one of the - not to say THE - funniest movie I've watched from 2016. It's got everything a great coming-of-age adventure needs and more. It contains countless great laughs, it's quite bizarre from time to time, there are some very loveable and memorable characters, and their story is simply batshit insane in the most positive way. Plus, the story between Hec and Ricky did warm up my heart in the best way possible, thanks to the brilliant chemistry between Sam Neill and Julian Dennison.
Be sure not to miss Hunt for the Wilderpeople. It's one of the hidden gems of 2016, and it should be seen by everyone of you.
