Shopping

Film (Trailer) – 2013

R16
Restricted

Shopping is the first movie from Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland, who won acclaim for their short films. The 80s-set drama follows a half-Samoan teenager on the Kapiti Coast (Kevin Paulo), who is seduced into a world of petty crime. Adrift in muscle cars and boozy parties, he finds stirrings of love, and escape from his volatile Pākehā father. Little brother Solomon (Hunt for the Wilderpeople's Julian Dennison) must fend for himself. Selected for the Berlin and Sundance Film Festivals, Shopping triumphed at the 2013 NZ Film Awards (including winning Best Film and Screenplay).

An extremely compelling first film with a fantastic lead actor. We loved watching him on screen and felt a deep empathy with him. Sharp editing, strong visual choices and a complex, painful and loving portrayal of family. We appreciated the specificity of the world you brought us into. Your dedication to your vision is palpable.
– Comment from the Generation 14plus jury, at 2013 Berlin Film Festival
