A Birder's Guide To Everything

While Hollywood likes to show teenagers in movies getting up to no good, co-writer/director Rob Meyer has a different story to tell with the coming-of-age comedy "A Birder's Guide To Everything," where the only thing these kids wield is a pair of binoculars.

Co-written by Oscar winner Luke Matheny (for his Live Action Short "God Of Love"), and starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, James Le Gros, Alex Wolff, Katie Chang, and Ben Kingsley, the story follows David, a 15-year-old birding fanatic, who has snapped a photo of a supposedly extinct duck that hasn't been seen in North America since 1878.  The problem is, the picture is too blurry to be properly identified, so on the advice of Dr. Konrad, a legendary ornithologist, he assembles a ragtag team to try and get a better photo, in a tale that's more than just about birds. And in this exclusive clip, we see the first meeting between David and Dr. Konrad, and learn of the connection they share beyond winged creatures.

"A Birder's Guide To Everything" hits VOD on March 11th and opens in theatres on March 21st. Watch below.
