Best movie to come out of NZ in years!
25 July 2010 | by ingridlearySee all my reviews

Fantastic, compelling, funny, captivating movie. Congrats on an excellent script which never loses the viewer for a moment. Great acting/directing. I grew up in Howick and this film captures the essence of the East Auckland suburb... the suburban dreams, the ignorant racism, the generational clashes and the price of ego. Highlights: the swimming pool scene, the gorgeous brothers who are brothers in real life, the quirky way in which the older brother finds understanding from someone whose culture and background are so different to his, Robyn Malcolm who is so completely believable and engaging as Gazza's long-suffering wife.... Fantastically entertaining movie that stayed with me for days after. Thoroughly recommended.
