If you love a Kiwi accent as much as I do, and want an awesome, family-friendly movie to check out this weekend, you should hit up Mt. Zion.
Starring the amazing Stan Walker, Mt. Zion tells the story of Turei and his family who are potato farm contractors. But Turei, a talented musician, has bigger dreams, which in 1979 involve opening for Bob Marley on his tour of New Zealand. But to realise his dreams, Turei must face his traditional family who believe in devotion to the land, not music.
Released in Australian cinemas today through Sony Pictures, Mt. Zion is expected to fare extremely well at the box office. It was the number one film in New Zealand this past week, and amazing reviews have been coming from our Kiwi cousins.
The soundtrack for the film, released through Sony Music, will be available in our stores tomorrow. The soundtrack has a unique Maori take on the traditional reggae associated with Marley. You can check out Stan Walker’s single, Take It Easy, below.
