The Catch - In Cinemas around NZ from 5 January 2017
HEARTWARMING KIWI COMEDY ‘THE CATCH’ TO HOLD RED CARPET PREMIERES AROUND NZ THIS SUMMER
Based on a true story of cheating in the annual fishing contest and set on the beautiful Kaipara Harbour, THE CATCH tells the charming story of mates Brian (Nicol Munro) and Wiremu (Tainui Tukiwaho) who can’t believe their luck when a large snapper falls into Brian’s hands days before the contest. There’s a lot on the line when added to Brian’s dilemmas is the arrival of a new romantic interest. THE CATCH is a heart-warming film about friendship, trust, morals and the triumph of good over evil - all set against the backdrop of ecological frailty and all told with wry humour.
THE CATCH features an original soundtrack made for the film by Greg Johnson. After viewing the film Neil Finn was quoted to say “A scandal this big could blow the entire fishing competition business wide open.”
