Arthur (Rawiri Paratene), self-proclaimed Second Son of God, lives in Ponsonby in a boarding house for the mentally ill and homeless, run by manager Bob (Greg Johnson). When a television reporter investigates the home Arthur sees an opportunity to prove his heavenly credentials by preaching his vision of a just and caring society. On his mission he encounters Margaret (Sara Wiseman), a fragile community worker struggling with infertility and an empty marriage. A spiritual connection is made between them and Arthur proclaims her the Queen of Heaven. After a visit from the local health authority the home is under threat of closure. Can Arthur work his magic on the locals to save their home? Directed by Rosemary Riddell from a screenplay by husband Mike Riddell, adapted from his original novel. Reviews – Empire – ‘There’s a remarkable sense of place and emotional power, in a moving, orginal movie that deserves to be seen’ – **** Total Film – ‘Crowd pleasing Kiwi slice of magic realism’ Fortean Times – ‘Funny, heart-warming, and tear-jerking by turns’
