Let’s Talk Movies: Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Thursday, January 21, 2021

You may have missed this hilarious Taika Waititi comedy…

Our staff love more than just books—we’re movie-lovers, too! Watch a movie on Kanopy—a streaming service that is free with your library card—and then join us to talk about how much you love (or really don’t love) it!

This month, we will talk about Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the award-winning 2016 comedy from acclaimed director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows, Jojo Rabbit).

Julian Dennison stars as Ricky, a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle (Sam Neil) in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together.

"Every once in a while, a small, unheralded film comes along, so smart and funny, such a pleasure to experience, you can't believe your luck. Hunt for the Wilderpeople is such a film." - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

We gather online to talk movies on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
