'COUSINS' (PG) FRIDAY 30th July Showing at 10-30am* / 6pm / 8-15pm
Storyline: Mata, Missy and Makareta. Three cousins. Three lives. Separated by circumstances, yet bound together by blood. Orphaned Mata believes she has no whanau and lives out her lonely childhood in fear and bewilderment. Back home on the land, educated Makareta flees an arranged marriage to study law and begin the search for her missing cousin. She leaves behind cheeky yet dutiful Missy who takes on her role of kaitiaki (guardian) of the land. As the years pass, loss of the family land seems imminent and the women's promise to bring their stolen cousin home seems more unlikely than ever, until a chance encounter changes everything.

1. Amazing film that tells a story similar to many of that generation and the impact of Colonization on urban Māori. Will make you feel all the emotions humanly possible in the most beautiful way . It was personally awesome to see a movie that stepped away from the narratives depicting gangs, violence and abuse. Great actresses young and old !!! Ngā mihi nui kia koutou e te mahitoi !! (Peter Willis FLICKS TODAY)
2. A gorgeous film, a heart-wrenching story punctuated by moments of cheeky and childlike delight. One of my favourite films to come out of Aotearoa. The non-linear narrative may be a little tricky for some, but it's based on one of the protagonist's disjointed memory. I can't wait to see this on the global stage! (Maggie Starkey -Movie Review)
