Blackbird

Renowned director Roger Mitchell (My Cousin Rachel, Notting Hill) has assembled an all star-cast including Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise) Sam Neill (Palm Beach) Kate Winslet (The Reader), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Rainn Wilson (TV’s The Office, Juno) and Lindsay Duncan (Birdman) in a moving remake of Danish hit Silent Heart.

Lily, a spirited woman in her late 60s, is preparing for a weekend with her husband, Paul, and their visiting children. Despite her impaired mobility, Lily insists on fending for herself. The couple are hoping for a lovely day, but the mood is clearly strained when their guests begin to arrive at their country home. First is daughter Jennifer, who comes with her husband, Michael, and their 15-year-old son, Jonathan. Lily and Paul’s friend Elisabeth arrives, as does younger daughter Anna and her on-and-off partner Chris. Rebellious Anna has been elusive and out of contact with the family, a fact that clearly angers her elder sister. As the weekend continues, old wounds come to the surface, driving some family members apart and others together. With both daughters increasingly conflicted about their mother’s plan, Lily’s hopes of a peaceful farewell appear to be under threat.
