Reviews
Mine: Interesting movie. Give a kind look into a culture I knew nothing of. Moves slowly. Very nice performance by Keisha in the title role. Somehow lacking dramatic arc.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A contemporary story of love, rejection and triumph as a young Maori girl fights to fulfill a destiny her grandfather refuses to recognize.
