This offbeat comedy depicts the complicated capers of a foster child and his begrudging guardian, who accidentally become fugitives in the lush forests of New Zealand. In conversation with actor Julian Dennison, Elizabeth Flux expounds on how the young protagonist's search for family and a home reflects New Zealand cinema's journey to prominence on the world stage, in part due to director Taika Waititi's unparalleled efforts.
