Catherine Called Birdy (2022)
In the Medieval English village of Stonebridge, Lady Catherine (known as Birdy) is the youngest child of Lord Rollo and the Lady Aislinn. Her playground is Stonebridge Manor, a house that, like the family, has seen better days. Financially destitute and utterly greedy, Rollo sees his daughter as his path out of financial ruin by marrying her off to a wealthy man for money and land. But Birdy, like any good teen heroine, is clever, adventurous, and ready to put off any suitor that comes calling in increasingly ingenious ways. Her imagination, defiance, and deep belief in her own right to independence put her on a collision course with her parents. And when the vilest suitor of all arrives, they are presented with the ultimate test of love for their daughter.
Based on the hit children’s novel by Karen Cushman and written and directed by Lena Dunham (Girls, Tiny Furniture), Catherine Called Birdy is a sharp, hilarious adventure-comedy about the always-relevant pressures of growing up a girl in a world you can’t control. Starring Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones), Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Fleabag), Billie Piper (Doctor Who) and Dean-Charles Chapman (1917).
