Birdman (Or: The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance)

by Alejandro González Iñárritu
To accept who you are, you must reconcile who you were.

Acclaimed director Alejandro Gonzlez Irritu ("21 Grams" [2003], "Babel" [2006]) will astound you with a story that is intense, funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting - all wrapped up into one gloriously shot film. Michael Keaton stars as Riggan Thompson, a washed-up Hollywood movie star whose respect and glory days are behind him. His only shot at artistic redemption is through producing, directing, and starring in a Broadway play. Preserving his legacy, however, isn't so easy: Riggan's mind and mettle are put to the test as he attempts to put together a Broadway hit while contending with a colorful cast of supporting characters, including his daughter Sam (Emma Stone), his lawyer Jake (Zach Galifianakis), and a devil-may-care method actor named Mike (Edward Norton). Will Riggan get out of this mess alive with his sanity and career intact? This Academy Award winning film (Best Picture, Best Director, 2014) takes you on a journey that is altogether engaging and thought-provoking. It's a journey that we unknowingly avoid until later, when it all-too-easily attempts to rip our psyche out by the root. See it and reflect, see it and enjoy!
