Good for Nothing

Film (Trailer and Extras) – 2012

R13
Restricted

In this odd couple tale set in the American west, Cohen Holloway (Until Proven Innocent, Boy) plays an outlaw who abducts an upper class Brit. Calamity ensues when the hardman fails to have his wicked way with her. After screening at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, the self-funded movie won praise from critic Leonard Maltin. While Utu took the Western genre and applied it to New Zealand history, Good for Nothing mines South Island scenery for a so-called 'Pavlova Western'. Longtime Weta staffer Mike Wallis directs. The rousing score is by composer John Psathas.

I think the culture of the ‘Southern Man’ in New Zealand is very similar to that of the Western cowboy. It’s a tradition of a man of the land with few words or expressed emotions ...
– Writer/director Mike Wallis
