Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople ★★★½

A lovely film and I like the light airiness and doses of humor sprinkled over this story about a family forming and the government and authorities are the enemies trying to say what is a family. Sam Niel and Julian Dennison have perfect chemistry despite being polar opposite characters. It's beautiful. Sometimes the jokes go a little far or the story gets a little unfocused, but overall a film I'm glad I like more than I remember liking when I first saw it.
