This was perfectly splendid!!! Love love loved this!!! I did not expect this movie to touch me so much, was on the verge of tears many times ❤️❤️❤️ such a heartfelt movie, Taika Waititi is really growing on me as a director, he is one of a kind 🤧 plus there were some scenes that made me laugh my ass off Esp. The scene where he describes what his uncle makes him do 😅😅😅 my god, hilarious

Charming to the very last minute. Full of taiki’s charisma and humor that makes the mundane hilarious.

A heartwarming and offbeat tale which slowly charms you and shows off Taika Waititi's enormous talent, persuading you to root for characters you didn't think you'd like and gently tapping into your inner anarchist. Fully recommend.

This was my favourite film I saw this year. The chemistry between Sam Neill and the young Julian Dennison is simply exquisite.

A beautiful story of a young boy and an older man forging an unlikely friendship as they seek to evade the people who look to take the young boy back into foster care. They become very good for each other, both learning valuable life lessons from the other. Really beautifully done.

Funny take on being alone in the woods, though there is a little misuese of firearms. I still found it very entertaining and inwould definitely watch it again.

Just all around fantastic. Great characters, wry humor, and a heartwarming story. Director Taika Waititi is a genius and one of my favorite people making movies these days (also Jojo Rabbit, What We Do in the Shadows, and Thor: Ragnarok).

Cutest movie about the friendship between a young boy and an old man! The movie is sort of odd/quirky in its own comical way. Be prepared to shed a tear or two ❤️ Great for Sunday chill
