Eagle Vs Shark
Directed by Taika Cohen
In Wellington, Lily is a wallflower, inexplicably attracted to Jerrod, a loser. He's nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school; she's just out of a job. She goes home with him to a seacoast town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis; she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members - and there's the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with a women he had a crush on years before, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home? The feature debut of filmmaker Taika Waititi. Stars Jemaine Clement (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) and Loren Taylor.
Eagle vs Shark is the tale of two socially awkward misfits and the strange ways they try to find love; through revenge on high-school bullies, burgers, and video games. The feature debut of filmmaker Taika Waititi. Stars Jemaine Clement (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) and Loren Taylor.
Unbearable characters. Had to turn it off after 10 minutes.
A lovely little film about the meaning of love and how to find and keep it. Sometimes it may take a little push from one, but the other must learn to turn back and meet halfway.
