The Catch (2017)

  • Comedy, Drama
  • 1h 25m

Based on a true story of cheating in the annual fishing contest on the beautiful Kaipara Harbour, THE CATCH tells the story of mates Brian and Wiremu who are up against the ruthless professional fishermen. Brian’s life is in turmoil, recently divorced and in extreme financial difficulty, so can’t believe his luck when a large snapper falls into his hands days before the contest. Wiremu is dead set against the idea, but things get complicated when Marcus enters the picture and attempts to blackmail Brian. There’s a lot on the line when added to Brian’s dilemmas is the arrival of a new romantic interest.

THE CATCH is a heart-warming film about friendship, trust, morals and the triumph of good over evil - all set against the backdrop of over-fishing and ecological frailty and all told with wry humour.
