once were warriors

A fierce portrait of the degeneration of Maori culture and pride. Here a family strains to keep it together through a haze of addiction and abuse. As clan matriarch, Beth is stuck between her love of the booze, lust for her eye-blackening hubby, and desire to protect herself and her children. Her daughter Grace, a budding writer, is particularly vulnerable, and the film’s devastating finale hits home like none other. [nz, 1994]
