We're happy to offer our readers the chance to attend a free advance screening of the Sundance comedy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, starring Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, and directed by Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi.
Synopsis: Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both 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, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.
The screening takes place on Tuesday, June 21st at 7:30pm at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring. If you'd like to attend, download and print the below E-Pass, good for you and one guest. Please remember that having passes does not guarantee entry as all screenings are first come, first served. Enjoy the show!
