    Once Were Warriors is a 1994 New Zealand drama film based on New Zealand author Alan Duff's bestselling 1990 first novel.[3] The film tells the story of the Hekes, an urban Māori family, and their problems with poverty, alcoholism, and domestic violence, mostly brought on by the patriarch Jake. The film was directed by Lee Tamahori, written by Riwia Brown and stars Rena Owen, Temuera Morrison and Cliff Curtis,[4] and has won numerous awards.[5]


    Not sure how this ended up in my netflix queue, but I'm glad it did. Heavy story, but well worth the watch.

    Yeah, very emotional. I also came away from the film with a cool song.
