Unfortunately, the film itself never quite feeds off the quirkiness or the energy, and so it remains a pleasant but not a profound film.

A lovely little modern screwball comedy that only hard-hearted cynics will resist. An unexpected bonus comes with the delightful stream of old pro's as...master storytellers.

Though you could fit its story on the head of a pin, "A Bird of the Air" is a gently involving character dramedy with a pair of appealing leads who help give this offbeat movie flight.

Quirky screwball romance has many original points of interest, but is marred by fatal miscasting of a lead.

Its lethargic plotting and quirky affectation are -- wait for it -- strictly for the birds.

Not a bad premise, but first-time director Margaret Whitton fails to temper the sappiness with real human crustiness.

Margaret Whitton's A Bird of the Air traffics in a sort of vague, half-defined spiritual questing.
