Critic Reviews for Blackbird
Someone nudges this in memoriam in the ribs and reminds it to be a melodrama, at which point a far more typical story of family feuding kicks in.
The moving melodrama is bolstered by an outstanding cast...
The film never recovers from a contrived and distracting plot development in the last third that highlights the artificiality of its structure.
Turns out you can make a silk purse from a sow's ear, if "you" are Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska.
