Movie of the Day: Waikiki (2021) by Christopher Kahunahana

Escaping her abusive ex-boyfriend, Kea, a part-time Hawaiian teacher, hula dancer, and bar hostess, temporarily lives out of her van to piece her life back together. One night after a violent beating, she speeds off into the night only to slam into a mysterious homeless man crossing the street. Unwilling to leave him to die, she takes him into her van and her life. Waikiki, Hawai‘i’s first Native-written and -directed feature, is a visceral allegory for the contemporary issues which plague Hawai‘i’s people, including mental illness, physical abuse, and identity loss. Winner Best Hawaii Film, 2021. Link IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6932766/ Link Review: https://loudandclearreviews.com/waikiki-review/
