      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Unrelentingly somber yet undeniably powerful, Bluebird serves as a thought-provoking calling card for debuting writer-director Lance Edmands.

      Audience Member A moody film in a moody environment which is a study on cause, effect and responsibility. The crux of the drama is bleak and this pretty much sets the tone for what we see, but the work through of the story and the acting is good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie had my attention almost the entire way through, but like so many movies today creative laziness creeps in and leaves you with no ending. Feels like a waste of time. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review brendan n Great indie film and that moment you have that little mistake that brings everything down. This won't appeal to everyone but if you enjoy a slow burning drama with an actual story you'll digest this. This was a great discovery and I will recommend this to anyone. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm an extra in the movie so 5 stara Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Lance Edmands slowly paced film offers some great performances by the cast and uses the cold, brutal elements of nature to great effect in this psychological study of grief and guilt. If only this movie had been more tightly focused on Amy Morton's character and less concerned with trying to capture the impact of a tragic mistake on too many people. The movie tries to do too much. The various subplots become half-baked. Morton's nuanced and painfully realistic performance comes close to being magical, but the unsettling work is almost lost as the viewer continually gets pulled away. What remains is an uneven movie that feels far longer than its actual 90 minute running time. But it is refreshing to see a film that tries to tackle too much and never falters in the core examination of grief, guilt and loss. Bluebird may stumble, but it does so with grace and realism that make it a worthy experience.

      Andrew O'Hehir Salon.com If you're willing to enter the world of downbeat northern gloom in Bluebird, it's a delicate and affecting drama with grace notes of mystery and redemption. Feb 27, 2015 Full Review Keith Phipps The Dissolve Shooting on 35mm, Jody Lee Lipes makes the harshness look beautiful and unforgiving, and in a film filled with strong performances, Morton's work stands out. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 27, 2015 Full Review Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com Edmands' scenario provides plenty of opportunity for narrative twists and social commentary, but these aren't the areas of interest for the filmmaker. Rather, he's interested in the people ... Rated: 3/4 Feb 27, 2015 Full Review Lauren Burgess HeyUGuys It's a pity Bluebird never quite manages to provide the real emotional payoff that it's seemingly working towards, but it's still an interesting portrait of loss and guilt. Rated: 3/5 Jun 13, 2017 Full Review Travis Hopson Examiner.com We can't allow movies the quality of Bluebird to fly under the radar. Rated: 4/5 Feb 28, 2015 Full Review Robin Clifford Reeling Reviews Amy Morton gives a solid performance and is the strongest element of "Bluebird."
