After crafting a pair of animal-related shorts, Rob Meyer, who has worked as a wildlife filmmaker for PBS’s NOVA and National Geographic, premiered his feature-length debut at Tribeca Film Festival this year. Tracking David Portnoy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and his bird-watching roadtrip, assisted by Ben Kingsley‘s character, we now have the first trailer for A Birder’s Guide to Everything.
We were fans of the coming-of-age story at Tribeca, saying in our full review, “A Birder’s Guide to Everything is fun cinematic comfort food, deserving of a mainstream audience. I have a feeling its target demographic will eventually find it and love it.” We added, “The film balances its tone, mixing light comedy with darker material, especially as David bonds with Ellen (Katie Chang), the only female in the expedition.” Check out the trailer and poster below for the film also starring James Le Gros, Alex Wolff, and Ethan Cohn.
A Birder’s Guide to Everything hits VOD on March 11th and in theaters ten days later.
