RUBY & RATA

ABOUT

1990, 102 minutes

Rata needs an address so she can continue to cheat the welfare department. Ruby needs an Anglican. Willie lights fires. Their culture clash of lies and pretentions is told with humour, warmth and charm and reveals an unlikely family with more in common than they realize… A warm-hearted comedy.

Preston and her team have woven a special kind of Kiwi magic in this one - I’d crawl over broken glass to see it again - and again
