“The Birder” premières tomorrow Thursday July 31st at Ottawa’s Mayfair Theatre on Bank St. The comedy, currently boasting a 7.9/10 IMDB rating, sees mild-mannered bird watcher Ron (Tom Cavanagh – Ottawa born and yours truly’s brother) seek revenge after losing out as Head of Ornithology at a National Park to a younger couple.
As well as Cavanagh, The Birder heralds the return of wonderful Ontario-born actor Graham Greene, perennial comedy master Fred Willard in the role of Park President with Toronto natives Tommie-Amber Pirie and Mark Rendall who is rumoured to deliver a tremendous performance.
An Official Selection at Raindance Film Festival 2013, the Calgary International Film Festival, the Canadian Film Fest and the Los Angeles Comedy Festival The Birder promises smart wit and charm.
The Mayfair is a great choice given Tom lived as a child for several years around the corner in Old Ottawa South on Willard St.
Tomorrow’s première will be attended by the film’s Director Theodore Bezaire, Producer Gerry Lattman and more so fly on out for a great flick with a touch of home!
