Story


A sassy parrot and a free-spirited librarian upend the well-ordered life of a solitary man.

Lyman (Jackson Hurst) is a loner, working the graveyard shift for the Courtesy Patrol. When a green parrot flies in to his trailer he becomes obsessed with finding its owner, which leads him to Fiona (Rachel Nichols). She has been eyeing Lyman from a distance and decides to help with his parrot search, whether he wants her to or not. The pair set off on a search that doesn't always lead them where they think they're going, but gradually leads them to one another.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this feel-good fable's stars share little interspecial chemistry..”
by Nick Schager [Time Out New York]
“..with all manner of intriguing clues like its own parrot-speak, is a rather ingenious gambit which keeps you watching..”
by David Noh [Film Journal International]
“..with a non-specific brand of spirituality that, while probably preferable to a dogmatic Christianity, is too fuzzy to endow his quest with much in the way of dramatic thrust or meaning..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
