PORK PIE starts out with Jon fleeing his own wedding to confront his ex-girlfriend. After almost being run over, he is offered a ride by Luke who's driving a stolen Mini Cooper and is on the run from a group of vengeful criminals. Joined by impulsive drive through-clerk Kiera, they play cat and mouse with the police as they travel the length of New Zealand. Matt Murphy's remake of his father Geoff's Kiwi classic GOODBYE PORK PIE from 1981 is an action-packed road trip comedy in the spirit of Taika Waititi's HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE and Richard C. Sarafian's VANISHING POINT.
Matt Murphy (New Zealand) PORK PIE is Murphy's first feature film.
