Since I will be moving to New Zealand in January, I've been doing a bit of research - looking online for novels, short stories & movies set in New Zealand or written by New Zealanders.
In the movie category, I've found Whale Rider, The Piano and Rain, all of which I have already downloaded.
Books have been a little tougher to find. I found a short story by Shayne Parkinson called All I Want, which I really enjoyed, but that seems to be all I can find. I'm sure I'm just not looking in the right places.
Maybe you can help me. Can you recommend any good movies or books about New Zealand that aren't tourist-focused?
