★★★★½ "An extraordinary and gripping account of an exceptional life and times" - Stuff.co.nz.  

The story of Dame Whina Cooper, the beloved Māori matriarch who worked tirelessly to improve the rights of her people, especially women. Flawed yet resilient, Whina tells the story of a woman formed by tradition, compelled by innovation, and guided by an instinct for equality and justice whose legacy as the Te Whaea o te Motu (Mother of the Nation) was an inspiration to an entire country. 

Starring Rena Owen, James Rolleston, Miriama McDowell, Vinnie Bennett and Tioreore Ngatai-Melbourne. 

★★★★ "A big-screen journey into the inspirational life of a phenomenal woman." "An important four-star slice of history." - Newshub 

"A soaring and heartful telling of Dame Whina Cooper’s life, Whina is a triumph." "A powerful portrait of the woman at its heart, it is also a breathtaking picture of nearly a century of social history" - Flicks (NZ)
