Storyline

This is a film about a troubled teen, Sean Randall, who is falsely accused of planning a Columbine shooting scenario. It all begins when an unlikely bond forms between Sean (Connor Jessup) and a preppy teenage girl named Deanna Roy (Alexia Fast). Deanna's boyfriend is deeply threatened by Sean and Deanna's friendship, resulting in a violent confrontation. Seeking to protect himself, Sean issues a death threat online - and is swiftly arrested. When the police raid Sean's home, they find rifles, shotguns, knives and ammunition - all property of Sean's father Ricky (Michael Buie), an avid hunter. They also find a supposed "hit list" with twenty names of people who have tormented Sean. The authorities and the media proclaim another Columbine has been narrowly averted, and soon Sean faces a terrifying imprisonment in a youth detention facility. Sean's only hope is to overcome his dark image, and prove his innocence to Deanna and to his community. Written by Producer

Review about Blackbird
12 January 2014 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Film very liked me. It is watched like one minutes. Very interesting. I recommend it all who would watched film about life. There aren't special effects, superheroes and anybody likes they. This the story about love, loneliness, fear and friendship. The topic of film isn't new, but what will be after you won't guess. Film haven't got any elements of soup opera like tears, embracing, kisses, languishing look and etc. It is excellent. Film shows like hard to live person who is done something not as established in society. The system works so that you will broken and become like all, as well. But if you decided that never will be in you life, so you love film necessarily.
