Whale Rider (2002). A contemporary story of love, rejection and triumph as a young Maori girl fights to fulfill a destiny her grandfather refuses to recognize.

Beautiful, moving and unique, Whale Rider was one of the most compelling releases of 2002. Keisha Castle-Hughes gives a performance that leaves you wondering why the hell she isn’t a superstar, and it’s lifted higher by the work of her surrounding actors and the very capable direction of Niki Caro. It handles sensitive subject matter beautifully, and while it’s such a deeply cultural film, it’s themes of family and expectations are universal. 9/10.


Ever want to see obama throwdown?

Creepypasta characters you should fight
  • Slenderman:he is Large and In Charge he has like 9 arms and you can't punch him in the face what is the point of fighting him.
  • Eyeless Jack:you could punch him and he'd literally eat your entire hand do not fight Jack.
  • Jeff the Killer:Jeff is like that angry white boy in the back of class that punches his desk and mumbles under his breath. Unpredictable and kind of smells like cheese. Fight him. Fight Jeff. For the love of god fight Jeff.
  • Sally:Why would you fight this precious smol baby you monster.
  • Toby:lots of pent up rage at horrible waffle jokes. He's been through enough. Don't fight Toby.
  • Jane the Killer:wears high heels and expects to be able to run away in them??? Fight Jane.

Why it’s important to me: This photo represents the truest, most raw pieces of life: Friendship. It was taken in London, and while not everyone knew each other in this photo before it was taken, the friendships and love that have grown since it was snapped are inspired and precious. It is a reminder that in our lives of hustle, bustle, business-making and deep desires to leave legacies, that we exchange ideas, share vulnerabilities and enjoy the company of those we care about and love. 

MADISON (WITI) — Supporters are calling it a “bittersweet celebration.” Assembly Bill 409 is officially law. Gov. Scott Walker signed the bill into law on Wednesday, April 23rd. Now, if police in this state take someone’s life, an outside agency must handle the investigation.

Michael Bell on Wednesday morning joined several other families at the state Capitol to watch Gov. Walker sign the bill into law.

Bell’s son, Michael was killed by Kenosha police in 2004.

“I feel a lot of joy over it, but it`s not a spiking the ball kind of joy. It`s a joy that we`re doing this for the greater good of the whole,” Bell told FOX6 News.

State Rep. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) worked closely with Door County Republican Gary Bies to advance the bill.

Bies says the bill nearly died before it even reached a committee.

“Oh, we were on CPR quite a few times,” Bies said.

Ultimately, both the Assembly and the Senate passed the bill unanimously.

“It brings some transparency, some independence. I think it`s really hard, in any profession, to investigate your own colleagues,” Taylor said.

Joining the Bell family for the signing were the parents of Paul Heenan — killed by Madison police in 2012, and Sonya Moore — whose son, Derek Williams, died in Milwaukee police custody in 2012.

“It`s kind of soothed my soul because my soul was hurt because didn`t no one get penalized for what they did to my child — so it might not be the main step but it`s a very big one,” Moore said.

“If my brother was there, I think he`d be jumping up and down — like so proud of the family and even the extended family we met along this journey,” Bell’s sister, Shantae Bell said.

The bill also states that if law enforcement officials are cleared of wrongdoing — the family of the deceased is entitled to copies of the investigation.

Bell says he hoped the bill would include a required blood draw for officers involved in a deadly use-of-force incident — but even though that didn’t make the final version, Bell says he’s still satisfied.
