Our second presentation for January is 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' written & directed by Taika Waititi, (What We Do in the Shadows; Eagle Vs. Shark, Flight of The Conchords).
Waititi gives us another poignant and moving comedy-drama that focusses on the unlikely relationship between one reluctant 'uncle' (played by Sam Neill) with his foster nephew (played by Julian Dennison). Then, during a hunting expedition this 'odd couple' get lost in the New Zealand outback and become the cause for a national manhunt.
This charmingly offbeat adventure story unites a solid cast, a talented filmmaker, and a poignant, funny, deeply affecting message, that was named Film Of The Year by Empire magazine.
Screening is at 8.15pm on Monday 23rd January at the Connaught Studios, Worthing.
Our next screening will be on Monday February 13th at Emmanuel Church Hall. Film tbc.
