REVIEWS

"...Poppy is undeniably upbeat, its heart is in the right place, the songs - written and recorded by Seb Hunter - are terrific, and above all, it's a showcase for a brand-new star.

Libby Hunsdale won me over in the very first shot, dancing in front of the mirror in a bridal veil. But she seemed capable of doing anything: car stunts, long emotional scenes, jokes - lots of jokes - and holding our attention for an hour and a half. Poppy is well worth chasing up."

SIMON MORRIS - RNZ

"...this Kāpiti-dramedy is, at its heart, a celebration of the region and its leading lady. Hunsdale delivers a terrific performance as Poppy and the script allows her to prove that Down syndrome is no barrier to living life to the full.

 

Poppy is a nuanced, vibrant and comedic tour-de-force and it’s easy to see why she charms most of those she comes into contact with.

...Likely to be a huge-hit in its own backyard, hopefully Poppy propels its two leads onto even greater things."

JAMES CROOT - STUFF

"Poppy - a perfect antidote to the winter blues."
