An enjoyable, thoughtful film
28 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film, shown at a benefit for The Wild Bird Fund Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Center in NYC. There's a lot to like--the characters are well drawn, particularly the teens who passionately embark on a quest to sight and document a supposedly extinct duck. There's lots of delightfully nerdy tomfoolery amongst them. On the serious side, this movie's also about loss of a loved one and finding your way forward from that. It's moving, while still remaining humorous and full of bird lore. Birders and non-birders alike will adore the nature photography. Ben Kingsly, as a revered bird expert, radiates his usual star quality. Don't miss it.
