BIRDMAN (or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) – famous for portraying an iconic superhero – as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.

BIRDMAN centers on one-time action hero Riggan Thomson (Keaton), who attempts to be taken seriously as an artist by staging his own adaptation of Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. Thomson, however, must contend with a resentful daughter (Stone), a scene-hogging narcissist (Norton), a vulnerable actress (Watts), and an unhinged girlfriend (Riseborough) for co-stars, a manager who is coming undone (Galifianikis), as well as his own inner demon—the superhero that brought him fame, BIRDMAN.

“A triumph on every creative level, from casting to execution …”

“Birdman flies very, very high.”

“The easy joke is that while many are touting “Birdman” for Best Picture, it’s undoubtedly the front-runner for Most Picture. This is not a film in need of creativity, passion or energy; what it needed was restraint, consideration and direction.”

“Both Hollywood and Broadway take their lumps in “Birdman,” a compelling tale that’s a backstage drama, a character piece, a stab at magical realism, and much more.”

“Michael Keaton soars in this savagely funny, strangely sweet, sad and utterly brilliant New York-set comedy from Alejandro González Iñárritu.”

“Manic energy and overriding sense of fun… The lunatic performances by Keaton and Norton are the highlights.”

“Perhaps we can consider films like Babel the necessary ashes from which Birdman had to rise and hope Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ascendance continues.”

“Michael Keaton nabs the role of a lifetime in Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s wonderfully strange look at an aging actor fighting to stay relevant.”

“Hubristic, humble, heartfelt and hotheaded, “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” is phenomenal.”

“A technical tour de force, a beautifully performed and smartly scripted black comedy that will leave its audience keen to head back for more …”
