Storyline

Pelican Blood tells the story of Nikko, a funny but left-of-center young man living in London. Following a disastrous break up with his girlfriend, Stevie, he's taking life one day at a time, throwing all his energy into his hobby: bird spotting Just as life becomes bearable, Stevie arrives back on the scene, causing a rift between Nikko and all his friends, who warn him she will destroy him. They are fully aware of how the couple first met: on a suicide website, pledging they will 'end it all together'. As their intense, disturbing and highly sexual connection resumes, the relationship between Nikko, Stevie, his friends and his hobby are thrown into questionable chaos. Pelican Blood is a funny and passionate look at the things that make us tick, and the things we tick off the list. Written by Icon

Treadaway rocks!!
5 February 2010 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I went to this film knowing nothing about it except that it had something to do with birds. However, I was blown away by it. Funny, romantic, thrilling and sexy. British films don't often do convincing sex scenes but this one has a couple that are genuinely erotic. Great, great soundtrack too. Plus, Harry Treadaway is a real find. I'd seen him in 'City of Ember' last year and thought he was good enough. But he really steps up here and delivers a very powerful performance. The rest of the cast do great work too. I'd never seen Emma Booth in anything before and thought she was really engaging. Gorgeous too! I haven't heard anything about when this is getting released but it deserves attention.
