Eagle vs Shark
Written and Directed by Taika Waititi
2007 | 93mins | English
To finish up 2018 with one of our favourite directors, Taika Waititi (read: Thor: Ragnarok, Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), PS.Screen is so delighted to be showing one of Waititi's earlier indie works, Eagle vs Shark, starring Jemaine Clement and Loren Taylor (read: completely different tone to Thor.)
Eagle vs Shark is a wry comedy that chronicles the quirky romance of two awkward misfits, Lily a shy fast-food restaurant cashier, and her crush, Jarrod, an electronic store clerk. On the day Lily gets fired from her job at Meaty Boy, she musters up the courage to attend Jarrod's annual "come as your favourite animal" costume party. The dressy affair sparks the beginnings of a romance as well as a small journey for the pair to Jarrod's quiet hometown, where Lily unwittingly finds herself stranded amongst Jarrod's family of eccentrics.
Join us for the last PS.Screen of the year for this weird and delightful treat of a film! As always you're welcome to bring your own booze, buds, boyfriends, bunnies, and cozy up with us this winter season.
Thank you to the New Zealand Film Commission for making this screening possible.
