Kawa is the man who has everything. He’s a corporate high-flyer, being groomed to take over his prominent family’s company, properties and legacy. He and his beautiful wife Annabelle have two children –16-year-old Sebastian (Pana Hema-Taylor) and 7-year-old Miranda (Miriama Jane Devantier) – who he loves deeply.

And he’s never shared his secret life with his wife or his family.Kawa was brought up by his parents – Hamiora (George Henare) and Grace (Vicky Haughton) – and his whānau (‘family’) with a strong sense of duty, is a man of special gifts who is expected to lead his community, and moves easily within both Māori and Pākehā worlds. But when his lover arrives at the whānau celebration of his father’s birthday celebration, pressures intensify and Kawa realises that his life must change…

Excellent portrayal of an issue that any gay male has when realizing that he is living a lie and living a life that is expected of him from parents, peers, etc. Set in New Zealand just also emphasizes that coming out happens not jut in white main stream but all over the world.

Execellent story line.and acting Aug. 20 2012

Great movie with a familiar story line but a different culture and country. Enjoyed learning about the New Zealand culture and attitude towards homosexuality.

Ok movie but not great Dec 21 2012
By Fitz - Published on Amazon.com

My partner and I enjoyed the movie modestly but it was ok. Not that different from other movies we have seen when an older man with wife and children fully realize that he was always gay form childhood but did not know how to express until later in life. There was not enough to the script or romane between him and the younger guy and nothing really juicy or interesting romance wise. Basically nothing memorable to talk about after seeing it. There should have been more to the plot.

Great acting. Great filming July 10 2014

Coming Out is hard to do and the pain it can cause. Exellent movie. Great acting. Great filming. Superb storyline
Too late May 27 2014
By chromo_man - Published on Amazon.com
A somewhat typical film tale of a gay man coming to terms with his sexuality later in life, after long attempting to live the "normal" life that was expected of him. Nothing out of the ordinary there. The only thing that gives this story any additional appeal is the New Zealand setting and the chance to get brief glimpses into the traditional Maori culture. Unfortunately, those glimpses are all too brief to raise this film above the dozens and dozens of films that have already told this same coming out tale.
