Film Review of Whale Rider

Whale Rider is a historical film based on a New Zealand legend of Paikea directed by Nicky Caro. It revolves around a girl, Paikea. She is the next chief of their tribe even if her grandfather is against it because of ancient traditions and beliefs. The theme of the Whale Rider is about love and trust towards your family. Every film has a message, and the Whale Rider has too. That message is that no matter what the hindrances are, if you really want something, you should work hard to achieve it.

I like the film because it taught me a moral lesson, which is believing in yourself and hard work is more important than what others say. I like Paikea the most because, despite her grandfather not believing in her, she showed him that she was suitable to become the next chief of their tribe.

Overall, Whale Rider is one of the best movies you should watch with your family, because it is amusing and somehow educational since it is about Maori history.
