Summer Film Series - Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

International film is returning to BREC this January! Our Summer Film Series will run every Saturday from 9 January to 6 February, presenting the best of award-winning and foreign films from the past few years.

Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (MA 15+)

119 minutes ~ Comedy/Drama ~ USA

2015 Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Directing, Writing & Cinematography

Actor Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) is most famous for his movie role from over twenty years ago of the comic book superhero Birdman in the blockbuster movie of the same name and its two equally popular sequels. His association with the role took over his life, where Birdman is more renowned than "Riggan Thomson" the actor. Now past middle age, Riggan is trying to establish himself as a true artist by writing, directing, starring in and co-producing with his best friend Jake what is his Broadway debut, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. He is staking his name, what little artistic reputation that comes with that name and his life savings on the project, and as such will do anything needed to make the play a success.

Pre-order a cheese platter for $18 for two people (or $28 for two including glass of wine each), sit back and enjoy some fantastic cinematic offerings in our Wellington Suite. Orders close 12pm the day prior to each screening. Platters can be pre-purchased in person at the Box Office or by by calling 1300 661 272.

REVIEWS

"Admirably daring and filled with wonderfully vivid performances, Birdman also feels at times more like an exercise in style than a genuine emotional experience."

Erin Free, Filmink

"You are unlikely to see a better American film this year."

David Stratton, The Australian
