MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Karen Samdahl (A-)

Hunt for the Wilderpeople was received with rave reviews at Sundance and recently played at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) where it was so highly appreciated it was chosen as a movie to repeat after the festival’s end.  I highly recommend this very funny family film to all audiences.  We see a budding young actor in Julian Dennison who appeared in another SIFF family film last year, Paper Planes (2015, Australia).
