A 12 year old boy in New Zealand, his struggles to do right.
3 April 2000 | by (Chicago IL) – See all my reviews

While this is a very New Zealand film, the characterizations of the boy and his family were sustained right to the end. We could have had a "feel-good" ending, but Mason, rightly, chose not to give us that.

I grew up in NZ, and the "feel" of the family's characters are captured very nicely, as were the eccentricities and insensitivies of some of the characters. An excellent family film.
