Boy Melanie'S REVIEW

A Gem

A well acted and portrayed light comic feature film. Very impressed with the natural acting from the children in this film, you felt empathy and humour throughout. Waititi obviously wanted to keep the content light and humourous even dealing with, poverty, neglect and theft and did achieve that. Great use of 80's culture, music and slang..."egg!". Lovely to see a director give children the leads and trusted them to come good with their natural instincts. Waititi is a funny and humble actor. Probably a little slow in the middle, but was really great overall.
