Wyatt Russell Receives Rising Star Award at Maui Film Festival

If Wyatt Russell looks familiar, it’s because he’s the perfect blend of his famous parents, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Wyatt has been making a name for himself in such films as Richard Linklater‘s Everybody Wants Some! and the singer-songwriter indie Folk Hero & Funny Guy, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring.

Wyatt was honored with the Rising Star Award at the 2016 Maui Film Festival on June 15, 2016, which “honors a young film artist whose every role — even in their formative years — surprises, enthralls and delights audiences of every age.”

In this clip, he discusses how Maui (the island) has exceeded his expectations.
