Taika Waititi (New Zealand) / M

This first feature is a laugh out loud comedy about two lonely misfits and their attempts to find love. Lil (Loren Taylor) is a shy fast-food cashier with a crush on clueless gaming geek Jarrod (Jermaine Clements). When Lily crashes Jarrod's fancy dress party wearing a shark costume and impresses the self-styled ‘Eagle Lord' with her gaming prowess she gets her man. But their budding romance is sorely tested by Jarrod's obsession with a childhood nemesis.

Pre-show short: Tank Busters (Dir Geoff Murphy, 1969, 30mins, G)

The Italian Job meets cheap jugs and at Victoria University student union. Short on exam fees and beer money, some students hatch a scheme to crack a campus safe. Starring Bruno Lawrence this film still stands out as little known kiwi gem.

“Eagle vs. Shark is a wonderfully moving, entertaining, unconventional film.” - Josh Tyler at Cinemablend

“A comic delight destined for cult adoration.” - Empire
