Little Birds Reviews

    Another poor attempt to try and retell a tired old story. The protagonist is unlikable and never once did I feel a bit of pity. The way the movie seems to glorify misey as the romantic part of coming of age is insipid. The teens are so sterotypical it is sad. The idiot, the thug, the sweet kid, the psycho girl and her best friend that doesn't give up on her. Please her friend would have left her about five minutes in for being such a bitch. Finally I love how at the end she forgives her for being horrible to her. No girl in real life would ever do thay. Are we supposed to applaud her foe the abuse she is willing to take. Finally I love how the ending has no consequences just two friends at the beach back to normal.

    Little Birds is a coming of age story, with Lily (filled with rebellion and angst), and Alison (the loveable, mousey tag along). The two are growing bored of their hometown, set in the Salton Sea, where they meet some audacious teenagers who invite them into their world. The story seems inadvertently familiar at first, then proves to be refreshingly unique once the adventure begins. There is unexpected suspense, with notable cinematography and music selection that pulls everything together.

    The movie ends exactly where it begins and makes the whole thing a waste of time.

    Juno Temple is a great actress and this role was unexpected for her. That's about it.

    As far as cautionary tales go, "Little Birds" is a dull, dreary, illogical, drawn out and predictable one with Juno Temple playing Lily, at this rate the kind of infantile woman she will be playing well into her fifties. Lily is bored at the lack of anything in the small town she lives in with her best friend Alison(Kay Panabaker). All of which could have easily been established in the five minutes it takes to walk across it, instead of the movie being half over before any kind of plot kicks in. That involves the visit of some boys from Los Angeles. And in one of the movie's only highlights, you can see the look of bliss on Lily's face after the ritual of exchanging clothing and phone numbers between her and one of the boys has been completed. So taken is she that she then tries to persuade Alison to drive them all the way to Los Angeles. Alison is so loyal to her friend that she does not yet recognize that they are heading in much different directions, much less that Lily is a train wreck, having almost literally caused one earlier and otherwise antagonizing everybody else in a thirty mile radius. Oh well.
