Title: A Bird of the Air Director: Margaret Whitton Starring: Jackson Hurst, Rachel Nichols, Linda Emond, Buck Henry, Judith Ivey, Erik Jensen, Matte OsianA Bird of the Air,” based on the novel “The Loop” by Joe Coomer, represents an unexpected boon to the judgment of Matthew McConaughey. After all, the naked drumming aficionado was attached to star in the movie adaptation for some time, back when he and “Sahara” costar Penelope Cruz were keeping each other warm. The financing never came together, however, and he backed out. Other possible filmmaking combinations came and went before a decidedly more indie route was eventually settled upon, years later, in the form...

Exclusive: Rachel Nichols can't whisper in clip from 'A Bird Of The Air'

Exclusive: Rachel Nichols can't whisper in clip from 'A Bird Of The Air'
When I was contacted about running a clip from an upcoming indie called "A Bird Of The Air," one thing got my attention right away, the name of co-star Rachel Nichols.  Aside from the fact that she's adorable, I think she's interesting although still largely untested on film.  She still hasn't had that breakthrough role or that big moment, and so instead, she's chipping away doing nice work in films like "P2" or "Conan The Barbarian" or on shows like "Alias." Is "A Bird Of The Air" a different type of role for her?  Maybe.  I don't know much about it.  The first time...

A Bird Of The Air Trailer And Preview

Coming your way in limited release on September 23rd, A Bird of the Air is a quirky, indie number that looks as charming as anything to come along in a while. Centered around a loner who finds a parrot, and embarks on a mission to return the bird to its rightful owner, it's a kind of quest film that spins out of control.

If the trailer is any real indication, my money is on this one coming together into a very solid effort, and one that I think many will find themselves watching again and again.

Below check out some more info, the trailer, and a few images, and find out if this one will make appearance near you.
