Whale Rider

Based on the book: The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera, and enhanced by the hauntingly beautiful soundtrack by Lisa Gerrard, Whale Rider was very powerful and sad. Again the dysfunctional family life struck home, but the sarcastic moments made it a lot lighter. The acting was masterful and the story was very different to most of the films that are being released, making it stand out from this year's releases.
