Description: Whale Rider, a 2002 film from director Niki Caro, takes us to a small New Zealand coastal village. There, a 12-year-old Maori girl, Pai, dreams of becoming her community’s first female chief. But custom and tradition block her way. And her own loving grandfather will most test her courage, strength and determination. Universal in its themes, Whale Rider shows that we can rise above the negativity brought on by others and become who and what we want to be. In his four-star review of this hugely popular film, Roger Ebert wrote, “There is a vast difference between movies for 12-year-old girls, and movies about 12-year-old girls, and Whale Rider proves it.”            269-469-2933
