DVD Release: A Birder’s Guide to Everything

April 22, 2014

A Birder's Guide to Everything DVD Cover

Today, Level Film released the charming A Birder’s Guide to Everything on DVD.  When young birder David Portnoy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) spots what could be an extinct Labrador Duck, he takes a road trip with his buddies Timmy (Alex Wolff) and Peter (Michael Chen), along with their photographer classmate Ellen (Katie Chang), to try and prove their claim.  But David’s father (James Le Gros) is getting remarried the next day, and the trip becomes a bonding experience for the group of relatable teenaged friends.

Premiering at TIFF Next Wave, there are plenty of likeable scenes in director Rob Meyer’s nicely written film, even if the story takes a few bumpy turns along the way.  The young cast has an easy chemistry together led by solid work from the talented Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Ben Kingsley makes a nice addition to the cast as a veteran birder.  These performances make A Birder’s Guide to Everything well worth a look.

The DVD also includes several featurettes.

A Birder’s Guide to Everything is 88 minutes and unrated.
