A hula story for everyone
3 March 2015 | by (Island of Hawaii) – See all my reviews

You don't have to be Hawaiian or from Hawai'i to appreciate this well-told story about respect and responsibility, with beautiful music and excellent choreography by some of hula's best.

A down-and-out club show host is tasked to take on the responsibility for a young men's halau (hula school) as they prepare for competition. As he and his haumana (students) work and learn, they come to terms with the sometimes conflicting responsibilities of family, religion, sports, girlfriends and their hula brothers.

Men's hula is a powerful expression, and this first-ever feature film about traditional hula is a wonderful film.
