THE next film showing at Milborne Movies is Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, the film will be showing at Milborne St Andrew Village Hall on February 2.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople was called by Empire Magazine 'the best film of 2016', and has won multiple awards.

Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the beautiful New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: loving Aunt Bella, cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, acclaimed director Taika Waititi masterfully weaves lively humour with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, Hunt for the Wilderpeople reminds us of growing up (at any age) and those who help along the way.

*Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Milborne St Andrew Village Hall, Friday, February 2. Tickets cost £3.50. Doors and Bar are open at 7pm and the film starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £3.50.
