Before he was the famous director of Thor: Ragnarok, New Zealand native Taika Waititi wrote and directed this gem. Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2) stars as a young foster kid named Ricky who goes to live with his new foster parents, Bella and Hec. While Bella is welcoming, Hec is gruff and doesn’t seem to care about Ricky. Through a series of unfortunate events, Ricky and Hec find themselves alone in the wilderness. What follows is a hilarious and heartwarming story as the two try to survive the wild and each other. This movie will really make you laugh, plus you get to see some beautiful New Zealand scenery. Win-win!
