May be the most beautifully complete film you'll see all year ” The Telegraph

Susan Sarandon leads this outstanding cast in a story about family, commitment, love and understanding and respecting the difference between having control and purpose to living, or simply living to be alive…

Lily (Sarandon) and Paul (Sam Neill) summon their loved ones to their beach house for one final gathering before Lily decides to end her long battle with ALS. The couple plans a loving weekend complete with holiday traditions, but the mood becomes strained when unresolved issues surface between Lily and her daughters Jennifer (Kate Winslet) and Anna (Mia Wasikowska).

With the stellar casting of Sam Neill, Kate Winslet, and Mia Wasikowska as her family, BLACKBIRD will be one to bring some tissues along too for sure.
