Light and breezy
This is a movie that will probably appeal to a younger audience, but I will never forget the vivid description of what Birdy thought was the birds and the bees. Birdy’s father desperately needs money, and marrying off Birdy is the only way he figures can work. And Birdy is equally determined that she will not marry under duress. Birdy carries with her a title, so she has currency. There is a lot of humor involved, most of it light hearted and towards the latter part of the movie, there is narration as if it is stage direction. There is a certain sweetness to the movie, showing the predicament women faced in 13th Century England.
Loved the book as a kid. The movie is…disappointing.
I was so excited to hear that this book was being adapted into a film! And when I saw what a strong cast it had, I was even more excited.
The excitement passed about 15 minutes into the film. In it, Birdy is a far cry from the spunky young heroine from the book. She is whiny and selfish, and not much else. Bella Ramsay does a good job with a one-note character. But the script loses all the humour of the book.
An excellent supporting cast is pretty much wasted here, and I just found myself wishing it was over. The ending was preposterous and unsatisfying after suffering through almost two hours of lacklustre story.
Do yourself a favour and read the book. The characters are better, brighter and I think you’ll find it an all-around a more enjoyable experience.
