New Zealanders often experience cultural cringe, and a film like this is likely to go under their radar. Which is a shame because this really is actually a good film, even if it is set in Auckland. And I don't even mean 'it's a good film for a New Zealand film', which is what I usually mean. I mean that this is a good film. It's actually worth seeing at the cinema and not just on television. So good it could have been made overseas. It's that good.
I only gave it eight stars though because we really don't like to take pride in stuff, especially if it's not sport related. Having said that this film does feature a lot of sport, so. Maybe that's an angle that could be used to lure kiwis in to see the film.
