‘The Starling’ featuring a score by Benjamin Wallfisch will premiere in select cinemas on Friday 17th September before arriving on Netflix on Friday 24th September. The film is directed by Ted Melfi, and stars Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd and Kevin Kline.
‘The Starling focuses on married couple Lilly (Melissa McCarthy) and Jack Maynard (Chris O’Dowd), at a turning point in their lives. Facing the prospect of being ripped apart by the tragedy of losing their child, The Starling explores how Lilly and Jack experience grief in their own, very different, ways.
As Lilly attempts to find her way through her grief, she finds herself in a constant battle with the starling that has claimed dominion in her backyard. Whilst this blend of humor and emotional depth might surprise some, it’s Lilly’s quest to kill her nemesis that sees her cross paths with psychiatrist-turned-veterinarian, Larry, who decides to help her with her mourning process, as well as her bird problem.’
