[5.00/10] The Starling (2021)

The Starling (2021)

Quick Review: Neither emotional, nor particularly amusing, let alone a great blend of both, "Startling" is an ill-balanced dramedy that explores grief of child loss, and how people cope with it in different ways, but it's also about a bird-human encounter turned into an untypical friendship, which despite the dodgy effects, is the best bit about this tonal mess, along with McCarthy's turn as the trainwreck Lilly and the sweet bond she has with the therapist / vet, who Kilne portrays so likably.
