Two Little Boys stars Hamish Blake from Hamish and Andy and Bret McKenzie from New Zealand’s acclaimed Flight of the Conchords.  It is the second feature film from writing team Robert and Duncan Sarkies, following their debut feature Scarfies which premiered in competition at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in 2000 and was a NZ cult-hit, securing over $1 million at the local box office on its release.

The film is based on Duncan Sarkies’ first novel of the same name and was adapted by the brothers for screen over a 3-year period in Wellington. Initially conceived as a film concept, the idea was then developed into the novel by Duncan and published by Penguin in 2008, before it finding its most recent incarnation as a feature film.

The film was shot in Invercargill and the Catlins in 2011. The story of the book was initially set in Dunedin, but during the financing process the production found a new home in Invercargill so the film was re-imagined into a Southland setting.
