Whale Rider

Whale Rider was the BEST film of the summer of 2003, the highlight, the blessing. If you were enchanted by “Island of the Blue Dolphin” as a kid, and “Gifts of the Sea” as an adult, then you’ll want to experience this quiet contemplation of a young girl’s life and her desire to belong to her Maori tribe and make a contribution. There is a deep longing in the film that if you let it, will move you and stay with you. Mythical and mystical.

This movie was more than worth it.

'Phoenix' is a haunting post-Holocaust mystery
'Mad Max: Fury Road" & "Tomorrowland" both prophecy and fantasy
'The Gallows' is a snooze fest
‘The Look of Silence’ exposes Indonesia’s present day legacy of genocide
