About the Movie

In this warm, coming-of-age comedy, shy bird-watching enthusiast David (Kodi Smit-McPhee, ParaNorman) is struggling to cope with his father’s impending remarriage when he stumbles across a duck that had been presumed extinct. Assembling a ragtag team of friends, the group of teenagers goes off on a quest for proof with the help of a birding expert (Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley). Also starring Katie Chang (The Bling Ring) and Alex Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band). Presented by Focus World and Screen Media Films.

Customer Reviews

Highly recommend this film

I saw this film last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and loved it, planning to take my kids to see it when it hits screens in Dallas next week. A rare film these days that can be appreciated by adults as well as teenagers, the young actors give great performances and Kingsley has some very funny moments...I expect to see big things out of Smit-McPhee, Chang and Wolff in the future, but you can see them now in one of my favorite movies of the past year.
