Does anyone out there in the birding world know anything about the 2010 film Pelican Blood? IMDb gives this as the storyline:
Pelican Blood tells the story of Nikko, a funny but left-of-center young man living in London. Following a disastrous break up with his girlfriend, Stevie, he’s taking life one day at a time, throwing all his energy into his hobby: bird spotting Just as life becomes bearable, Stevie arrives back on the scene, causing a rift between Nikko and all his friends, who warn him she will destroy him. They are fully aware of how the couple first met: on a suicide website, pledging they will ‘end it all together’. As their intense, disturbing and highly sexual connection resumes, the relationship between Nikko, Stevie, his friends and his hobby are thrown into questionable chaos. Pelican Blood is a funny and passionate look at the things that make us tick, and the things we tick off the list.
Sounds good, no? But have any actual birders seen it? The preview is below.
Of course, everyone is focused on and looking forward to that other birding movie due to come out in October but in the meantime why not check this one out? Though after reading this review I have to wonder if it is worth tracking down at all…
