I bought this as I know little of NZ - other than my niece is currently spending Christmas there. I was very pleasantly surprised. Contrary to the very negative review (from Anastuna) that I have only just read, I found the film very very watchable. The costumes and the period seem convincingly portrayed, the acting sure-footed and Ms Eve, especially, does an excellent job.
The script does jump a little and the viewer must surmise some of the (obvious) continuity - but this is a minor objection to what all my family agreed was an extremely good film.
