Kiwi Flyer

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 2012

PG
Parental Guidance

Kiwi Flyer sees 12-year-old Ben (Edward Hall) and his mate trying to win a local trolley derby in memory of Ben’s father. In their way are schoolboy loan sharks, competition from Australia — a family led by Wayne (Vince ‘Beaureparies’ Martin) — plus the challenge of getting permission from mum (Tandi Wright). There’s plenty of Boy’s Own action and slapstick (aided by comedian Dai Henwood playing a bumbling teacher), as Ben channels the DIY spirit and races for glory. Tony Simpson’s low-budget heartwarmer (also known as Derby Dogs) was based on Nelson’s annual Collingwood St Trolley Derby.

It's refreshing for viewers of any age to see what enormous fun a few sunshine hours and a piece of No 8 wire can deliver.
