The Big Year

In birding, a Big Year is seeing or hearing as many different species of birds as possible in a calendar year. Three men pursue the Birder of the Year title: Kenny Bostick, who's seen a record 732 in a past big year, Stu Preissler, newly retired, and Brad Harris, who narrates the story. Life gets in the way: Bostick's wife wants a baby, Stu's firm needs him for sensitive negotiations, and Brad, divorced and underemployed at 36, has an encouraging mom and a disapproving dad. They criss-cross the U.S. (including a trip to Alaska's westernmost island), follow migration patterns, and head for storms that force birds to ground. Who will win, at what cost, and with what rewards?

Excellent!!!

Excellent

I know this movie flopped at the box office, but after seeing it on an aeroplane I liked it so much I ordered my own copy. It is just an all round good movie, with no violence, sex or bad language (so something the whole family can watch) with a great cast. It's also about an unusual topic - birdwatching - which I was quite interested to learn about. The scenery in the movie is stunning - especially the part shot on Attu - and the relationships between the characters are genuine and uncontrived. Highly recommended!
