New Zealand’s smash-hit musical is a feelgood, nostalgic romance set to some of the biggest hits in Kiwi pop history. 

A box-office hit with a jukebox of tunes to match, this inventive musical romance stars Kiwi pop star Kimbra as Maisie, an indie singer who rushes to be by her ailing father, Eric. As Eric recounts his life and romance with Maisie’s mother, Rose, the young woman starts to imagine their story through music, and the film flashes back through Eric and Rose’s bittersweet love story from the 1960s through the 1980s.

Based on Rochelle Bright’s award-winning stage musical about a Waikato couple’s romance, David Stubbs’s (Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses, MIFF 2016) film is a rollercoaster of emotional energy, bringing Eric and Rose’s three-decade romance to exuberant life through contemporary re-imaginings of the classic New Zealand hits you'll already know – from Crowded House, Bic Runga and Dave Dobbyn to LIPS, The Mint Chicks and The Exponents.

“A 93-minute time capsule of Aotearoa, from bad 70s moustaches to cringeworthy 80s fashion which gallops along to a glorious soundtrack of Kiwi songs.” – Stuff.co.nz
