Ricky's a kid from the city: a lover of hip-hop, snacks, and getting into trouble, and a product of foster homes that just can't seem to deal with him. His frustrated caseworker tells it plainly: "He's a bad egg." With one last chance to have a family before he's thrown back into the system and potentially into juvenile lockup, Ricky relocates to the New Zealand countryside to stay with the overly sweet Aunt Bella and cantankerous Uncle Hec. There's not much chance to stir up trouble on their remote farmland, and Ricky soon begins to fall into a calm familiarity and routine. Maybe this time he's really found a home. Yet a twist of fate changes everything, and when Ricky's threatened with being thrown back into the court system, he goes running for the thick wilderness instead, with grumpy old Uncle Hec hot on his trail. Equal parts buddy comedy, coming-of-age story, and survivalist film, with high-octane performances from newcomer Julian Dennison and veteran Kiwi actor Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a perfect blend of backwoods zaniness and sentimentality.
