IN THE FILM
Australian star Guy Pearce plays Thomas Munro, a lay preacher who arrives at a British settlement in 1830s New Zealand. His violent past is soon drawn into question and his faith put to the test, as he finds himself caught in the middle of a bloody war between Māori tribes. It speaks of the early contact between Europeans and Maori, when European settlers were outnumbered by several hundred to one and Māori had just acquired muskets. Tamahori and Pearce have been planning to work together for nearly twenty years now. Jacqueline McKenzie, Antonio Te Maioha, Te Kohe Tuhaka, Dean O'Gorman also star in the film out next April in Australia.
