A twisted take on "Little Red Riding Hood", with a teenage juvenile delinquent on the run from a social worker travelling to her grandmother's house and being hounded by a charming, but sadistic, serial killer and pedophile.
Pork Pie tracks the escapades of a trio of accidental outlaws as they travel the length of the New Zealand in a yellow mini, protesting conformity and chasing lost love, with a posse of cops and a media frenzy hot in their pursuit.
I'm not sure where the title comes from, but the stand-up comedy that makes up a fully 25% of the film is funny. Maybe it's not the funniest stand-up you ever heard, but it is better than average, and it's more than interesting to watch the lives of the performers and then listen to their stand-up routines.
The two lead actors are more than adequate, and the supporting cast is excellent. The story itself is compelling though some of the "chance" encounters stretch credulity. The director keeps the action moving right along
Definitely worth watching.
