Little Birds Movie Reviews
User reviews on Little Birds
I am a fan of films like that and I enjoyed this movie even though it had quite a few flaws. I thought that the journey that both girls had felt very organic, I really enjoyed watching their characters question things and I thought that the two leads did a remarkable job with the roles. Like I said before, the film had some flaws as well and the main one in my eyes was the lack of risk taking, I think that the main characters were a bit underdeveloped and muted. Overall, I still urge you to see this film and decide for yourself.
Little Birds, directed and written by Elgin James, is about two 15 year old girls one of which follows the other to Los Angeles. The storyline of the film is that the two girl’s friendship is tested and tested again during their trip. What they discover upon their trip is that the boredom of their home town may be easy to handle compared to the challenges of making it in a big city. I have never seen a film by Elgin James before but the name sounds familiar. This seemed like a movie that was very artsy and probably would not make it to a national release. Don’t get me wrong though, I very much enjoyed watching this film. The dynamic between the two girls was very interesting and I thought both actors did a great job for their young age. I believed the story, which I didn’t think was going to happen. Good film.
