Whale Rider


this is probably the best movie i've seen in 5 or 6 years. it was very finely drawn out. the characterization was wonderful. it appeared to have a great deal of respect for the indigenous culture that it portrayed, while not preaching about the disruptive consequences of 'progress'.
also Keisha Castle-Hughes is a pretty neat kid. she was winging it in this movie and pulled off a superb performance. once she learns how to act, i think she's on the way to a very rewarding career.

Enjoyable movie but it lacked depth in parts.There were parts in the movie that could have had more input.But Keisha Castle-Hughes showed wonderful acting ability.I am sure we will see more of her in her future endeavours.
