Birdman (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
Michael Keaton - Ed Norton - 2014
We were dying to see this movie as it got such rave reviews - 8.8/10 stars with its limited release. This weekend it made it to our cinemas, so we went to see it. The movie was very different -- Michael Keaton plays a washed-up superhero who tries to make one final comeback. The entire movie takes place on stage or in the dressing rooms basically. The acting was fantastic, but in the end we were a little disappointed. Should have gone to see St. Vincent.
