Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople ★★★★

Highly entertaining but poignant and touching too, thanks to a script that is stuffed with gags, but not at the expense of its characters or emotional depth. It manages that feat of feeling as warm and fuzzy as a cozy Sunday night comedy-drama, while also succeeding in being whip-snap smart and not afraid for "shit" to "get real" when needed. Plus, Sam Neill once again proves he's just the best.
