Now this ain’t right. Lance Edmands’ “Bluebird” was one of our favorite films of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. It had its international premiere at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival – where we spoke to the filmmaker – and it won the award for Best Actress (shared by its female ensemble) and the Ecumenical Jury Prize. It screened at festival worldwide including Busan (Korea), Stockholm, Thessaoloniki (Greece), Chicago, Maryland, and the Viennale. But apparently no one’s manned up to give it distribution in the U.S. (which is a bit bullshit considering some of the indies the usual domestic indie distrib suspects release, but we’ll refrain from naming names).

You won't see our review until tonight when the film premieres, but "Bluebird," the debut feature from first-time filmmaker Lance Edmands is a strikingly good drama and an auspicious beginning for writer/director Lance Edmands. Starring Amy Morton (George Clooney's older sister in "Up In The Air"), "Mad Men" actor John Slattery, Louisa Krause (the bitchy, scene-stealing hotel clerk in "Young Adult"), Emily Meade ("Fringe," "My Soul to Take,") plus co-starring Adam Driver ("Girls") and Margo Martindale, "Bluebird" is a wintry, stark and yet deeply penetrating and mature examination of interconnected lives between two sets of mothers and families.
