Win a double pass to uplifting NZ flick Uproar

Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) stars in Uproar, an Aotearoa coming-of-age tale from directors Paul Middleditch (A Cold Summer) and Hamish Bennett (Bellbird). In cinemas nationwide 5 October, we’ve got in-season double passes to Uproar to give away.

Here’s what it’s all about: From award-winning directors Paul Middleditch (Terra Nova, A Cold Summer) and Hamish Bennett (Bellbird), UPROAR is a moving and heartwarming story about connection and finding your place in the world. It is the story of 17-year-old Josh Waaka (played by Julian Dennison). Set in Dunedin in 1981, a rugby-obsessed country is divided over the arrival of the South African Springboks team, sparking nationwide protests. Under pressure from home and school to conform, Josh, who has never felt like he fits in anywhere, is inspired by the protests and by a newfound passion for performing to find his own voice. A sequence of events sees Josh embrace his community and his whakapapa Māori, taking him and his whānau on a journey towards healing.
