Movie Review

  Whale Rider

If you found Boy or Hunt For The Wilderpeople fascinating and intriguing then be sure to give Whale Rider your full attention.This movie is based on the novel by Witi Ihimaera, Whale Rider a must see film directed by Niki Caro shows the cultural customs of a Maori tribe in NZ. We see a cultural custom where only males are allowed to move up and become a chief, however, this tradition is ruined when the next child picked to be the new chief dies at birth, but his twin sister Paikea (Keisha Castle-Hughes) survives. She gets help from her grandmother (Vicky Haughton) and her uncle Rawiri (Grant Roa) to claim her legacy. But she’ll have to fight for it against her grandfather (Rawiri Paratene). This is where the havoc begins. (And if you haven’t realised yet Whale Rider is a drama).


Our opinion on the movie Whale Rider is that you’re definitely going to need a box of tissues because
Whale Rider really touches your heart. I recommend this movie for all ages, we think this movie was
beautifully made because the actors and actresses were AMAZING! and the setting was sensational.  


We give this movie a 4/5 stars because of how great the acting and storyline was and because the
setting was STUNNING!

Oh The places you'll go

Oh The Places You’ll Go


Oh The Places You’ll Go


I have learnt from this book Oh The Places You’ll  go by Dr Seuss is that
everyone has struggles and has times that you don’t know what to do.
But you have to learn to never give up and stay positive.
