This film makes you unbelievably proud to be a New Zealander, especially if you're in the entertainment business! Seeing such amazing performances within a well-crafted story set in one of our most beloved cities leaves viewers with a beautiful piece of Kiwi work that is well worth the watch. Congratulations to Stuart McKenzie and Miranda Harcourt as directors, Margaret Mahy as the author of the original book, and all the cast and crew who brought this story to life

A seriously beautiful, eerie, haunting film fuelled by a seriously strong story. Performances are A++. Erana James is incredible as the lead opposite an impossibly insidious Timothy Spall, along with Nicholas Galitzine who is super mysterious. Such a cool coming of age film that I can definitely relate to, aside from turning into a witch! Sosososo good, get in and see this piece of kiwi magic now!

I saw this film recently, and it was really good! I didn't know if it was for me, but a friend took me and I'm really glad I saw it. It keeps you hooked all the way through, and it has so many good actors, even international ones like the guy from Harry Potter!
It feels like an instant kiwi classic, and now I want to read more of Margaret Mahy's work.

Forget the stereotypical American Hollywood young adult flicks, and see Miranda Harcourt's and Stewart McKenzie's amazing new Kiwi film The Changeover, based on Margaret Mahy's novel of the same name, for an artistic, fantastical twist, with an element of horror. This is a film worth paying that bit extra to see in the cinemas, so do it!

The film focuses on this unconditional love and commitment all at once. Laura’s (Erana... More James’) chemistry with her little brother Jacko (Benji Purchase) flows naturally with warmth and affection. Her determination to help her brother and defeat the dreaded Animagus (ahem) Carmody Braque (Timothy Spall) felt uneasy and direct at the same time. It left me feel a pensive sadness
for Laura. The combination of vulnerability and struggle is what made this film for me. It felt personal and it felt established. It’s safe to say that this will gain a great cult-following.Hide
