★★★★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.

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)
