ANGELIKA’S NOTE

The first feature from now-iconic filmmaker Taika Waititi (JOJO RABBIT, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE) was heralded by Empire Magazine as "a comic delight destined for cult adoration." A Sundance Film Festival Selection, EAGLE VS. SHARK became known as "New Zealand's answer to NAPOLEON DYNAMITE" (Little White Lies). The film centers on two socially-awkward misfits and the strange ways they try to find love: through revenge on high-school bullies, burgers, and video games.

SYNOPSIS

Lily (Loren Horsley), a socially awkward fast-food waitress, meets Jarrod (Jemaine Clement), an equally oddball video-game clerk, at a costume party. She flips over him, even though he is not exactly the nicest guy around, and the pair begin a strange relationship. Gearing up for his ultimate revenge against a high-school bully, Jarrod dumps Lily, but she digs her heels in and refuses to give up the fight.
