| Achingly real and beautiful
Having lived in NZ for 8 years in a similarly remote coastal community, this beautiful movie made be both laugh and cry.

It shows both the highs and lows of: family, community life, and isolation.

The pace is slow, but the characters and photography make this movie feel like you are there in the windswept location yourself.

If you're after something mindless and trivial, this isnt for you. If you want to be opened with emotion and empathy - then indulge in this movie.
