★★★★½ "Funny, poignant and emotional, this thoroughly entertaining '80s-set dramedy deserves to be seen by Kiwis of all ages." - Stuff

Uproar is a story about connection and finding your place in the world. It is the story of 17-year-old Josh Waaka (played by Julian Dennison). Set in Dunedin in 1981, a rugby-obsessed country is divided over the arrival of the South African Springboks team, sparking nationwide protests. Under pressure from home and school to conform, Josh, who has never felt like he fits in anywhere, is inspired by the protests to find his own voice. A sequence of events sees Josh embrace his community and follow his heart to his whakapapa (Māori heritage), which brings him and his whānau on a journey towards healing. 

Starring Julian Dennison, James Rolleston, Minnie Driver, Rhys Darby, and Erana James. 

★★★★ "Uproar is a movie that deserves to be shouted about.” - NZ Herald
