Films by Must See

Dominic Corry

Once again, with heartening reliability, Bill Gosden and the New Zealand International Film Festival gang have delivered a sumptuous variety of pleasures in the line-up for this year's fest. I guess some things really are a constant in this mixed-up world.

In an effort to help you navigate what can sometimes be an overwhelming amount of choice, here are ten films from the programme that absolutely must be seen.

Everybody Wants Some!!

Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater follows Boyhood by recalling his own first days at college in this hilarious, deeply relaxed comedy about male bonding, set in the bars, discos, parties and frat houses of 1980 Austin.

Midnight Special

Jeff Nichols

Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst and newcomer Jaeden Lieberher star in this dazzling, genre-defying sci-fi/chase movie from the director of Mud and Take Shelter.
