Dr. Bird's Advice for Sad Poets

Comedy, Drama, Romance 1h 50m 2021

Sixteen-year-old James Whitman played by Lucas Jade Zumann (20th Century Women, Anne With An E), struggles to overcome anxiety and depression by seeking advice from Dr. Bird, voiced by Tom Wilkinson. In his magical realism inspired world, James goes on a whimsical, but emotionally charged search to solve the mystery of the disappearance of his sister, after an altercation with their parents depicted by Lisa Edelstein and Jason Isaacs. While James struggles to connect with his parents, he deals with the intense social anxiety of high school life while navigating first love with Sophie (Taylor Russell), a precocious girl from school who has her own agenda. Our two lovestruck teens set out on a quest to find Jorie, finding themselves in what appears to be a cult of sorts, led by David Arquette as Xavier, and into the under belly of NYC nightlife that makes James question every relationship in his life.

“Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets takes on the serious issue of mental illness with quirky insight, cinematic flourish and gentle humor.” ~Cynthia Vinney, CBR.com
