This is the first book to investigate the coming-of-age genre as a significant phenomenon in New Zealand's national cinema, tracing its development and elucidating its role in cultural change. With chapters on landmark films like An Angel at My Table, Heavenly Creatures, Once Were Warriors and Boy, this book explores the influence of the French New Wave and European art cinema and examines the dialogue between national cinema and a nation's literature. Looking at the characteristics of an indigenous 'Fourth Cinema', as well as different perspectives on gendered and sexual identities, Coming-of Age-Cinema in New Zealand considers the evidence, provided in these films, of significant cultural shifts that have taken place - or are in the process of taking place - as New Zealanders discover their emerging national identity.
