Whale rider

After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie calledWhale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2

Paikea secretly attended the meetings to become a chief. Her Koro was stubborn and he only went by the traditional rules. When the children did it differently he got angry. I rate this movie 4.5/5 because the background story is good and the film itself is well done.

  1. Hi Cameo,

    I'm really happy to read that you enjoyed the trailer for the 'Whale Rider' movie. It is a very well made film. The lead actress, Keisha Castle-Hughes, was actually nominated for a very prestigious award for her work in this movie. Although she didn't end up winning the Oscar (award) she still received a lot of attention from the film industry. Interestingly, she has continued to act and was recently in a number of episodes from the HBO series 'Game of Thrones.' It's quite a coup (special achievement) for someone from NZ!

    Would you like to follow in Keisha's footsteps and become an actress one day??
