The trailer depicts the life of Birdy as she is forced to marry her father against her wishes. We see Catherine trying to chase away the suitors seeking her hand in marriage.
In one incident, we see her telling one of the suitors that the Catherine he wants to marry is a vile creature and suggests that he leaves as she has three ears, one at the back of her neck. We also see how Catherine’s mother cherishes, and cheers for her yet has a very different perspective of life than her daughter. She goes against her father’s wishes and clearly shows her unliking of being married.
We can see a lot going on through the trailer, and there will be much more in the film.
What Is The Movie About?
The movie revolves around the life of a 14-year-old teenage girl named Catherine, who is quite cunning and also the youngest child in her family. We see her father, Lord Rollo, wishes for her to marry a good suitor, but she is hell-bent on driving away anyone interested in marrying her by taunting them and telling them that the girl they wish to marry isn’t normal.
This movie is set in the village of StoneBridge in Medieval England. Catherine lives in a manor, and her family has seen better days when it comes to financial status. Thus, her father wishes to marry her to a wealthy man who can help them escape the financial ruin they are currently stuck in. But Catherine is not interested in this plan cooked by her father and is opposed to it.
In the movie, we see her strong and independent character and a rebellious girl with a very different aim in life from the one her parents have for us. Her parents have only one goal: to marry her as soon as possible to a rich man for money and land. As all the suitors arrive, they are put to the ultimate test for their love for Catherine. Catherine is an adventurous and free-spirited young girl who wants to choose her path in life, which is very different from the one her parents chose for her.
When Is The Film Going To Premiere?
Amazon has set the premiere date for the movie. The movie will have a world premiere on September 12 at the Toronto International Film Festival. It will be released in the same month but only in select cinemas. We will be able to stream it on Prime Video.
