The Whale Rider
I really think this movie is great so I rate it a 5.
This movie is about a young Maori girl that had a dream to be a cheif, but apparently, her koro (grandpa) doesn't want her to be because when she was born, she had a twin that was a male but he didn't make it. Only males are allowed to ascend to chiefdom in a Maori tribe in New Zealand. This traditional custom is upset when the child selected to be the next chief dies at birth.
