Sundance 2016: 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' Review

Well, here's a total treat. Hunt for the Wilderpeople from writer-director Taika Waititi is an adventure story starring a rap-loving teen boy (Julian Dennison) and the surly middle-aged man who's reluctantly adopted him (Sam Neill). It's a modest, consistent charmer. I reviewed those Wilderpeople for Screen International. (That's Waititi in the photo. He'll be directing the next Thor movie.)
