DOP Lachlan Milne’s latest film released 26 May

hunt-for-the-wilderpeople-poster

The New Zealand box office hit, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, will be released in cinemas Australia-wide on 26 May. Written and directed by Taika Waititi and shot by Cameron’s client Lachlan Milne in the midst of a freezing New Zealand winter, the off-the-wall black comedy is the story of Ricky Baker, a ‘bad egg’ orphan who ends up under the care of Sam Neill’s Uncle Hector. When tragedy strikes, the pair flee into the New Zealand wilderness, sparking a manhunt of mythic proportions.

After its screening at Sundance earlier this year, the reviewer called it ‘the type of film that makes comedy look easy, a well-oiled machine that bounds back and forth from big laughs to heartbreak and back again. One of Sundance 2016’s most guaranteed hits.’

Anna Gardiner | The Taming of the Shrew

TamingoftheShrew

Anna Gardiner is, indeed, a major talent, seemingly growing from strength to strength in her endeavours.” – Kevin Jackson, Kevin Jackson’s Theatre Diary

Shakespeare’s love stories challenge us very deeply. They tend to be models of disharmony and madness in which trust, patience and finally, hope, are only reached through chaos and pain. They are as troubling as they are funny, and as beautiful as they are disturbing. The Taming of the Shrew captures that paradox perfectly, among the most challenging, confronting and exuberant plays ever written.

Sport For Jove is remounting its hugely successful production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew on the great Hollywood soundstage of the silent film era, in the Seymour Centre’s York Theatre from May 19-28. For more information and how to book, click here.
