Thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining film with depth
31 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what to expect from this film, but I really enjoyed it. I'm not a birder, but thought the bird photography was beautiful. The story had everything you could want. The well-developed characters were very likable. A Birder's Guide to Everything is a movie for everyone. It was entertaining, but had lots of depth. At first, I thought the film was going to be very predictable. I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and turns that followed. The audience in the theater where I saw the movie reacted to events in the film, and applauded at the end. I hope this film gets lots of notice! I think Luke Matheny has a bright future ahead of him.
