Para­mount

★★★ An ac­com­plished and unique com­ing-of-age af­fair. While built upon sturdy foun­da­tions of ac­ces­si­ble com­edy and re­lat­able drama, this NZ box-of­fice smash never quite as­sumes the shape of a typ­i­cal crowd-pleaser. Wri­ter­di­rec­tor Taika Waititi stars as an ab­sen­tee fa­ther who sud­denly re­turns home to sup­pos­edly spend some ‘‘qual­ity time’’ with his young sons.
