HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE 
It's a simple story about an orphaned troublemaker and his foster uncle go into hiding in the New Zealand bush as they find themselves at the center of a national manhunt.
It's a pretty low-key little film but it manages to be consistently funny, surprisingly touching and all around good for the soul with it's tale of two lost souls teaching each other a thing or two about themselves. There might be plenty of kiwi in-jokes but it stands with enough honest sincerity, belly chuckling warmth and universally funny moments it can be enjoyed from all over the world.
